It is part of a series which combines Watt's investigation of the use of fabric in art with an intense response to Francisco de Zubarán's Saint Francis in Meditation (1635-9) from the National Gallery's collection. Watt considers Phantom to be the most resolved work of this series. Watt studied at the Glasgow School of Art and Goma wants to support contemporary artists that have given Glasgow its significant international reputation for visual arts.
