This work is a vibrant and luminous piece, made by building up layers of the Humbrol enamel paint normally used by model makers. Shaw depicts an ordinary walled area within a residential estate. Apparently mundane, the enclosed space and the uncertainty of what is beyond the doorway give the work a darker, more sinister edge.
