Groundwork shows a brightly coloured Tuscany scene of a female figure and ping-pong table.

‘I gave my first series of lithographs the title Initiations to reflect that working with the medium of lithography was a new venture for me. In terms of mark-making, lithography is the printmaking process closest to painting, but it still presented a completely different way of building an image. I had to consider how, through overlaying transparent layers of colour, I could use a relatively limited palette to build complex scenes. The prints in the set were diverse in subject matter, reflecting a shift in subject in my painting practice at that time, from staged luxury towards an interest in artificiality and illusion. Groundwork relates to a series of paintings which took the idea of the dream home and what might go on there, presenting superficially enticing scenes of leisure.’
