83. MALÉ MAPY PRAHY. 36 paintings based on a map of Prague
1996 – 2007 This was a fun if frustrating project: to make paintings based on a map of Prague whilst keeping enough information for them to be still useful to find your way around.
A souvenir of many visits to Prague

I took a holiday from high modernism and returned to working outside from the motif trying to purge it of my mannerisms and the general malaise of Factur, Sitting quietly meditating on the constantly changing motif, only to develop some new cliché I suppose.
