grey granite morning

Here is one of a series of large scale images of Belfast buildings I made using compressed charcoal on cardboard around 2001. An art college tutor interpreted them as being akin to Western sets, appearing somehow hollow and unpopulated. This piece is around 6×5 foot in size.

My friend just pointed outed that the title refers to a line from “on your own again” by Scott Walker, from the incredible Scott 4 album. The haunting lyrics must have been floating round in my head when I titled this piece.
