New Painting- 'City of Glass 8 (The Red Notebook)'

'City of Glass 8 (The Red Notebook)'    150x120cms

I keep returning to red but there are a multitude of new reds in this painting.   The outsize notebook subverts the scale of Manhattan in the previous paintings.  Manhattan is transparent, is a window, is a city of glass. Through the window is a boiling sea or the inside of the detective's head. 

I think now is the time to introduce the New York series to the author of 'The New York Trilogy', Paul Auster.
