I can't remember when I painted a series of basic shapes on my studio wall, it was early on during this years project I think but not sure why. A warm up for something. I have recreated that moment of Cezanne-esque moment of simplification here right at the centre of the picture. I, like Cezanne, try to simplify everything to simple shapes to help make sense of them. So, an orange is a sphere, a mobile phone is a flattened and elongated cube and a mountain is a cone.
