This is an older painting and I actually gave it to my nanny for her birthday the other year. My nanny is the one who convinced me I was a Glasgow artist through and through, and I have embraced that with this body of work. I hope they re open the winter gardens and invest in the people's palace.
I have developed a different relationship with the building recently. During this strange time of lockdown I go there to exercise. I can't run as I have bad knees so I use the stairs to step up, and the entrance to do crunches and stuff. I feel like a broken Glasgow Rocky .
