Goldstone Court / Francis Matthews


Oil on canvas
400 x 600mm

This painting depicts an underground car park and the back exit/entrance to a shop during the daytime.

Sunlight enters from an opening above, diminishing any perceptual lighting from the flourescent artificial source in the carpark ceiling. There is evidence of human occupation in the accumulated objects (crates, shelving, rubbish, cars..) from both the commercial and domestic use that this place is the boundary between.

It has aged with use and natural processes, gaining memories and implying narratives.
