The painting The End of Time is of the site of a pub in the Tile Hill area on the edge of Coventry. Latterly called the Woodsman before it burned down, the pub is remembered not so much as a place where the artist drank, but as a place he passed every time he went to visit his mother. Over a period of two years the burned shell of the old pub was demolished, until all that was left were the concrete footings. A painting of a place where something once was, The End of Time has a brooding emptiness that the painter pushes to the point of abstraction.
