Vodňany, 2008 - 2013

7 paintings based around the old bridge dedicated to St John of Nepomuk (most s.v. Jana) in Vodňany. South Bohemia. Czech Republic. Started from an initial painting done at the bridge in summer 2008. At the time I was fascinated by the conflict of history, politics and languages that the spot represented to me and it is this I have tried to develop with much faltering and back tracking. In the intervening years we have watched the continuous transformation of this small corned of a provincial town from state socialism to consumer capitalism.
