This relatively large scale piece was made on several pieces of packaging card that were joined with tape. The edges were deliberately ripped to fit with the worn and weather beaten feel I was trying to project around this time. The elongated ‘H’ like structure of the piece is influenced by the bold brushwork of Franz Kline and by decaying machinery of Belfast’s industrial past. Figures can be discerned in the ambiguous black shapes in the central band.
