This piece is part of an ongoing series of paintings based on observational drawings in pubs and live music venues in the run-up to lockdown. Taking a cue from the small scale and iridescent hues of western religion devotional icon paintings, I began them whilst craving the connection of being in a shared social space, and romanticising that part of British pub culture I no longer felt part of. Rather ironically though, as I was usually there to support friends gigs and do not play an instrument, my experience was generally that of being alone, perched in a corner of the room, observing, listening, and drawing.

As lockdown progressed, I slowly ran out of drawings of pubs to paint from. In the most recent January lockdown, my only interaction with the outside world became my taking the tube once a week to go to work. I began drawing people on this commute. This man seemed so at ease in his surroundings, sprawled out and deeply asleep. I only noticed him 5 minutes before my stop whilst glancing up from my book. I sketched him quickly before I got off. It reminded me to stay present.
