BRISTOL 92 – JENNY LIFE (MONO + COLOUR)

The studio and shop of a ceramic artist, Christmas Steps, in the city centre; 10 July 2015.
To me, this image “opens out” towards the right, from between the dark triangles at upper and lower left. I imagine that this is a result of my starting to look at the image from the left.
But my eyes cannot settle. They are first drawn towards the leaning darknesses of the windows on the right. But, gazing at these, the few colours remain as small pale flames in my peripheral vision – an itch that needs to be scratched – and I cannot help but glance back left towards them; before being drawn back right to the slanting darknesses once more.
