I was cleaning my walk-in shower cubicle, so I pulled the PVC curtain out of the way and bunched it up into the recess, between the sink and the medicine cabinet. I have used this scenario before, with ‘Two Bridges, One Sink’. The cabinet is an old metrological box for outdoor weather measurements. I stretched and distorted it a bit to convey movement and stress. On top of the box is a porcelain jewellery container that used to belong to Sue, of a contemplating Pierrot (famous French clown). I reduced his actual size, to make him look more vulnerable in the stormy environment with the dark clouds and rough sea (Brighton Beach), as he makes his plaintive soliloquy. The curtains add to the effect, suggesting strong winds. For me, this illustrates the last thirteen years since Sue passed away. X
