This painting was first published as the cover of the 2013 Yes box set ‘The Studio Years 1969-1987”The subject of the painting is the rock formation in the distance. There were a couple of paintings that were just details from this formation, made in fact, before I had conceived of the complete structure. At the time of making them, I was fiercely curious of what lay just to the left or just to the right of the paintings, clearly they were part of a bigger structure and in fact part of a world where these structures were a given.’ – RD
