Exhibited at the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings, December 2013 as part of the Jerwood Foundation Collection. Shown next to Walter Sickert and Maurice Cockrill, a former tutor, it is great to see this painting again - The painting is alive in terms of painterly expression and visual language.

Cydonia, inspired by London cityscapes and images of Mars, Cydonia defining the location of the infamous face on Mars was a prerequisite for the inspiration of this painting.
