Hi Alan,

It seems that people are finding certain elements in this series of
work, in relation to their own perspectives, whether it involves
locality (nation etc) and or psychologically. I think this is good
because communicates in ways beyond my own trappings. I like letting
these works present, if possible, their unforced contexts -- it comes
out in the wash (for want of a better word) ;-)

Thanks for looking.

Wishing you well.
