35 Stone Wall Painting Meditation

It’s a wall, it’s stone. Irregular, weathered, the individual stones are hard to see. There’s a patch of dressed stone to the right, part of a window frame. About 3 cm down is a ridge of stone that crosses the entire piece. Then there is a sign which says “The Roundhouse” and that’s all. The effect is an abstract construction of white lines suggesting stonework. Random shapes mismatched and chaotically applied. The colours bleeding from one zone to another. Dirty browns adjacent to shocking pink. Purple burst by ochre block work. A sprawling mass of confusion.

The black sign, weathered with blue highlights, offers a single point of focus. The one identifiable feature in an otherwise anonymous scene. A scene that could be anywhere.
