I've just posted on Facebook and Instagram, a picture of my painting 'Young Lives' which I made in 1993. It portrays the ten Coney cousins as DNA structures personalised by ephemera they had collected for me over a six month period. Love letters, airline tickets, bills - I got it all!
The picture is over 6 feet tall and I remember it was hell to work on. Often I would put it it on the floor and lay down beside it, while other times I would prop the canvas horizontally on chairs and kneel down to paint.
I was a lot younger then, ofcourse. Nowadays I try to remain seated as much as possible.
