Workshop is a series of paintings exploring the ‘atmospherics’ of work interiors.

These paintings are imaginative rather than ‘true to life’, and feature dreams of machines and mechanical things. There is a playing down of logic in favour of mystery. The mechanisms could be aspects of the mind – internal works inviting, but, at the same time, thwarting comprehension.

The work is inspired by visits to work interiors, among them a factory that manufactures headstones, and a carpentry workshop.
