An artist in lock-down, “During lock-down I completed paintings as well as After Troilus resting. Because of Covid-19 it has not been safe for the photographer to visit for these recent paintings. After Troilus resting has connections, some personal. I saw John Barton’s RSC production of Troilus and Cressida, co-directed by Barry Kyle years ago at Stratford-upon-Avon. Chris Dyer was a designer on this production and had been at art college at the same time as I. Mike Gwilym was Troilus”.
