I just had an email from NYC, it made me think of the place; I’ve only ever been there once, for a few days, in February, in the snow, when Trezza was promoting The Hiding Place. We were put up in the Shelburne-Murray on East 37th and Lex. You could only have that address in one city in the world. You could see the Empire State building through the front window and the Chrysler through the back. Everybody looked after us and we loved it, it was like being in a film. I’m always taken with art from the American 50s, like London in the 90s it was one of the major times and places. This photograph really shows the relationship between the city and the painting.
