Guitar Man In Lucca (on which this one is based) was mostly made just after Xmas 1999 but completed in the first few days of 2000. It formed part of a large solo show at Derby Museum & Art Gallery in March 2002. The original canvas was a remembrance of a concert by the guitarist Pat Metheny at the Piazza Anfiteatro in Lucca. The ground conveying some of the colour of the buildings in this extraordinary oval piazza as the sun set whilst the stripes might read as both guitar strings and/or the colour of his trademark t-shirt. Through the year in question I worked on several more large pictures for the show including a series of six – one will be the primer for tomorrow’s entry.
