I opened out the ongoing canvas on the floor before I left on my last visit. I went away with a plan to recycle an old 6'x5' stretcher and to fix the canvas to the back so as to be able to work the front using a similar method to some smaller recent canvases. However, I eventually decided to use 2 other medium-sized stretchers so that the backing canvas would be complete and not pierced in any way. I cut out the required sections, picked up the remaining pieces, which are now many fragments and painted the stretchers white.
I am interested in things and processes that are often overlooked or spurned as irrelevant. In 2006 I began working an allotment in Derbyshire that became my field for research and working the ground has been important ever since.
