New York InteriorTuesday, December 03, 2013
For years I have been an admirer of the paintings of American Edward Hopper. I have been attracted to Hopper’s subtle (but perhaps not) portrayal of our personal isolation (perhaps alienation is a better word). Today I took this photograph of my friend Bronwen Marsden for a project in which she is a woman out of a Raymond Chandler novel. But when I saw the picture I knew I had an image that would go hand in hand with my favourite Hopper, New York Interior.
