These paintings fit into the genre known as paintings of ‘Modern Life’ first explored at the end of the C19 and beginning of the C20 and which has engaged many artists since.
Although painted in a figurative manner, the qualities of abstraction and flatness specific to modern painting, and the subject matter place them in contemporary context.
