This photograph is one of my favouritse. It was taken in the middle of nowhere, as one experiences places when driving long distances in a car, on the road between Spanishtown and Ocho Rios. The shop visible beneath the layer of paint is closed. I suspect the person owning the shop somehow prefered it closed, as it brought the point of the painting home dramatically. But perhaps he or she was just out shopping. There is a wonderful palimpsest-like disjunction between the painting's composition and the functional geometry structuring the surface of the wall with its reference to shutters and doors. The two layers ignore each other completely.
