The figure stares out while her subconscious thoughts fall silently behind her.

The blanket, brocaded tree, garment and backdrop are all on one unreal, plain.

The painting is a patchwork of 'fabric' and the fabric of the painting is broken by a scattering of cut-out dreams.

"This image emerged because I was developing the floral blanket and carpet motifs and trying to find a new expression for this.  I ended up with a far-away, dreamy image."

 Persian l The Rose Blanket   ©  Oil on canvas  70 cm high x 70 cm wide  A visit to a major Gauguin exhibition is reflected here in the treatment of the tree and choice of palette.  A Persian miniature of King Darius and Herdsmen inspires the conceit of horse and figure.  "I’m trying to free up the tightness of the miniature with broad, very loose brushwork whilst giving the painting a simple geometry.  The horse blanket allows me to 'quarter' the image with a painting within a painting."
