Deposition is a tondo, one of a series of work about the confined human figure that I began in November 2019.
At the time I was preoccupied with expressing my feelings about the challenges of ageing, which were overwhelming me.
We were unaware of the escalating Coronavirus epidemic in China.
As it later turned out, these paintings were strangely prescient, speaking of enforced constraint and the vulnerability of the human body.
