Past Midnight 2020


Past Midnight 2020 – 30x40cm, acrylic on canvas, pencil on paper, 65x47cm

Based on a still from the BBC’s televised version of Krapps Last Tape by Samuel Beckett recorded in 1972. Seeing this filmed version of Beckett’s play made a huge impression on me, I keep coming back to it, when Patrick Magee listens to his younger voice on his old tape recorder and then when I rewatch this film, I can’t help noticing that I’m also remembering the time back in 1987 when I first encountered this play.
