Two Persian Rugs on the Line, 1995, watercolour 20" x 26".
This composition rests on contrasting diagonals filling our London back garden. The whole thing is invented, but perhaps comes from memories of my grandmother having rugs which, during spring cleaning, were hung outside on the clothes line and beaten with an old-fashioned, cane carpet-beater.
