City

City mixed media on paper mounted on canvas 8″ x 8″ ¬£150

I am revisiting a view of the High Street in Oxford and adapting it to reflect the rich tapestry of the city. The skateboarder, tourist and student all carry their trademark objects with them while the city bus rolls by and the city is under wraps being transformed in the backdrop. I want the sharpness of the sunlight to bounce off everything  partly to highlight these features but also to symbolise the old giving way to the new.
