The apartment is a familiar image in my work - it features in a number of them with variations in situation. The clock invariably reads 5 past 4 in my paintings and if it does not it will read 7.25. In this case the clock is on the floor and is broken - the woman sits on the bed and the man stares out of the window at the panoramic view. Time has moved on for these 2 lovers and brought about changes which neither can fully fathom - but both realise that it has altered their relationship. The high rise buildings in the distance, through which the sun is shining, form a Stonehenge type of structure: the moment is seminal; its personal significance is profound and the change it effects is enduring. This is a personal Solstice.
