One of a series of paintings derived from found photos, specifically those where no information regarding the subjects, their activities or context is available. This anonymity and de-contextualisation serves to amplify the mystery and ambiguity of the images; they make problematic the banal and innocent content, re-inscribing the paintings with a new potential for significance. This is continued in the works’ titles, taken from popular songs of the 1950s and 60s, where the sentimental and romantic lyrics belied an often darker intent.
