A Sketch for a Wilderness

Whist living in Edinburgh in 1999 – 2001, I made this portrait of the meeting point of a number of communal gardens shared by different tenement apartment blocks in Marchmont. Though hardly Rannoch Moor or the Jotunheimen, which exist for much of the time in my imagination – this attempts, to paraphrase Wittgenstein – to reach right out to it.
