Originally a life drawing, this tile painting, Majia, naked with Apples is of a nude in an interior. In this image I try to create solidity by using simple forms and areas of dense colour. The woman inhabits her own private world. The rich subdued colours indicate intimacy yet untouchability. She knows we are observing her but she is unconcerned. She is totally at home in her own body. We can sit back in our chairs and study her without disturbing her equanimity.
