Like a lot of others stuck at home during lockdown with grownup children returning from their cancelled lives, this was too good an opportunity to miss. I wanted to make a painting about family, the complete absence of social distancing going on in our home with everyone here all the time, and of my four children as separate individuals but also as one fantastic friendship unit. There was an extended Mahjong game going on in our kitchen during lockdown that I drew from time to time, and this is the painting that came out of those lockdown drawings. The aim of the painting was to express the subject as simply and as economically as possible whilst making each of the four children indisputably themselves.
