FACING THE FUTURE

The Labour Party manifesto of 1945 was entitled 'Let Us Face The Future'. These autobiographical paintings are based on two South London streets. Distant memories of 1948 and the street I played in then merge with recent glimpses of the one I walk along now: walls, pavements, road markings and shadows.
