About ‘New Work’ – words by Ray Ewing:
I’ve decided to put a little light at the end of the tunnel in this body of new landscapes which is otherwise full of doom and gloom. I’ve been interested in how emotions can manifest in places for some time and this project deals with some of the prevailing winds of pessimism, apathy, and general foreboding.
