The painting Bundle forms part of a series of watercolour on paper paintings named How to Paint a Highway. The series was inspired by travels on the N1. It investigates this structure within the landscape as a non-place. The paintings are of debris, mainly tyres, collected on the shoulders of the highway and is painted in forensic detail – reminiscent of topographical art – to excavate the layered histories of the objects depicted and the materials used. As shredded evidence of accidents the manufactured materials take on the qualities, textures and form of natural material.

In this painting, the landscape format is explored. The object depicted fills the upper part of the composition leaving the lower part for the viewers to fill with their own imaginings.
