'After a recent visit to Cuba, I became interested in painting groups of people and the way in which they related both together and within their environment. Whilst in the public Art Gallery in Havana, which is a wonderfully spacious building, I began to draw figures as they moved within the space and was intrigued by the way in which the forms shifted within the groups and how the interplay of light and dark on the walls at one point absorbed the figure and then threw it into relief. Neither the figure nor the place was important to the drawing in terms of their identity,and in fact the speed drawing exagerated the anonymity of the people. What became important, and the point of developing the work into paintings on my return to the studio, was the balanced abstraction of the spatial relationships which were created within an equally abstract space.
