This painting came about through glimpsing my sister on a hotel balcony. The verticals and horizontals, the layers suggest the multiple barriers to penetrate through to what is in someone else's mind and being at any one moment. We cannot access it, only intuit it. They are separated from us, however close we may be. The painting has poignancy for me. The other person is in a sense closed off from us.

Technically, I thought this would end up a detailed, exact painting, but actually, apart from refining some of the straight lines, enough was already said with some rough scumbling and then the crisper strokes of the sheets. Inevitably, any painter would think of interiors of Vermeer, De Hooch, Matisse, Bonnard, Vuillard - but it's accurately that hotel interior in Gibraltar and unmistakably my sister.
