In the 1990s I was a market trader in Camden??s Stables Market. I dealt in vintage clothing. This abstract painting reveals my love for colour saturation and textiles. In this painting I have used my knowledge of older 1950s textiles with with brighter, clashing blues and pinks from the 1980s. Both trends were highly sought after by vintage clothing dealers at the time; we had a lot of fun with trading the 1980s vintage clothing. We were often visited by music & fashion icons from the 1980s and 1990s era at the market at that time. I remember Jon Paul Gaultier even paid us a visit with his entourage!
