The painting that gives the show its title, ‘Hinterland,’ is a good example, revealing an artist with a nimble, witty and curious mind. Showing two identically dressed young women seated at a lavish open air tea table, surrounded by birds and flowers and set against a fantasy view of the St Paul‘s river front, its pale, luminous colour and wiry delicate drawing provide a truly haunting and memorable image.
