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.
