'Terra Nova'


In 1200 Abbot Adams of the Eynsham Abbey, as a speculative builder, built Newland street with a wide road for a market. These houses still stand.

I am showing you the under painting of one of these houses. I stand in the future looking out on to the past and seeing a couple of Benedictine monks admiring the new estate.

I am enjoying the idea that a 'view' does not need to be the actual one.
