"Ramsgate Models" is from a new series of paintings exploring the coastal towns of Britain and issues of urban decay, towns in transition, gentrification and closing shops. I was exploring Kent during filming for Sky's Landscape Artist of the Year in the summer of 2018 and noticed so many old shops that were either closed or still surviving. Ramsgate Models has since closed down (February 2019), something I wasn't expecting to happen so soon after taking the photograph. Previous exhibitions this painting was included in: The John Ruskin Prize 2019 (finalist), Manchester, England. "Continuum", Southend-On-Sea, England.
