This piece is my personal favourite in the collection. It reminds me of the entrance to some kind of villainous lair from an old 1960s spy film. 

 

I have always been drawn to the red SECC tunnel that arches over the Clyde expressway. Liminal space is a technique I use often in my work and I think this is a prime example. I love the way your eye is drawn down the centre through the tunnel and up towards the mountaintop.

 

I also enjoy the contrast of the natural and urban in the piece, exaggerated by the way the curving lines of the tunnel resemble the Wifi logo – the ultimate symbol of man-made modernity. For me, I draw great personal delight in the added detail of the person’s shadow at the end of the tunnel, it’s as if they are straddling the line between nature and the city.
