Many years ago Rob was asked to document (photograph) Derek Hills’ studio up in Sunderland, this ‘documentation’ was meant to take a few weeks. 2 years later Rob finished the project and Mr Hill bestowed Rob with one of his paintings. Rob has had the oil painting forming a background to 2 decades of his life and has decided it’s time to move on and has put it up For Sale. There is no space to do it justice in the shop and well sometimes it’s time to move on isn’t it?
You can view some of Dereks more recent work at Saatchi online and you can see the painting itself by clicking here (when you see it in the flesh it gives you strange little tingles – I wish I could afford it).
