A friend commented that this painting owes something to Philip Guston...especially the earlier abstractions. What can I say...I remember looking at Guston when I was a student, and he did make a big impression on me, and still does of course. However, there is perhaps something more fragile and fragmented about this painting. What's more...I don't really consider it to be an abstraction in any ideological way...once again it is a painting which has its origins in the idea of a garden space or artificial landscape.
