About the artwork:

The inspiration for my painting ‘Dawson’s Heights’ came from a strange interrupted vapour trail I saw while walking in Dawson’s Hill Park. I liked how the shape suddenly stopped, a phenomenon caused by a sudden change in air pressure called an Inversion.

The abrupt ending seemed to echo the two squared off towers that form part of the iconic Dawson’s Heights housing development which for as long as I can remember has dominated the horizon around my home in East Dulwich.

It’s a building I’ve never quite made up my mind about but on that clear blue sky day, everything looked just right.
