Business Park (Night)

Business Park (Night), 2007

I’m attracted to the backs of things, rather than the front. That may tie in with my tendency to avoid a central/frontal composition. This drawing of a business park and a road strikes me as very much about the back of things. Even the surrounding areas are left-over land, the kind of place I actually find exciting.
