San Fran
Acrylic on Canvas, 2002

I collected bright, numbered tickets from the gutters of San Francisco in 2000. They are, predominantly, car-parking receipts, but looked like large-format, individually numbered, confetti on the street - as though a parade for giant robots had just ended.
I held on to the tickets for almost two years before they became the subject of this painting.
The finished image reminds me of pictures by Jeffrey Smart and Rosalie Gascoigne (though I shrink in their immense artistic shadows).
