I have been interested in the notion of the palimpsest, intrigued what may have gone before indicated only by traces, like scraping away the soil over a historic ruin. This has been done on canvas in many ways with, notably, Lucio Fontana and many others. I did a number in this style a few years ago, but they were fairly dour when I was exploring time and landscape. This is maybe a more colourful period, a glimpse of summer perhaps.
