This painting is part of a series which explores the theme of journeys. The title refers to the marks and traces we leave wherever we go, that bring us to where we are now.
The ‘You are here’ title of the series, refers to the map boards found in the middle of a city, or at the start of a country walk, with a pin showing your current location.
Pieces of vintage maps have been collaged into each painting. There’s something wonderful about the potential of maps – showing us all the places we could one day go – particularly poignant in the unprecedented time of the pandemic, when the only journeys we’ve been able to make have been in our imagination.
