From: The Building Collection: 40 x 50 cm A back-street St John's Antigua 2010. Such grandeur for a simple kiosk and still my favourite painting.
The world has impressive must-do tourist attractions thronging with people all jostling to take their photographs from that one key vantage point. The only alternative is that expensive copyright protected souvenir postcard. Today no artist could ever get to sketch from that key vantage point let alone be allowed to paint from that spot. These attractions have been painted by a plethora of artists' since the beginning of time and Phil Kendall does not wish to add his art here.
Away from that hectic world there are other sites simply crumbling away, come tomorrow they will be gone. Here there are no people in the way just fences and vegetation concealing tantalizing glimpses of the past. This is just the starting point for Phil Kendall's original art.
