1997   130 x 225 cms

Xavier Neal is pictured at the base of the painting pointing at the sky, a gesture inspired by the Greek icon painter in Tarkovsky's masterpiece, Andre Rubelov. Gregory McCormack leans against the wheel-rim . Sylvester, Patrick and Charles are the children absorbed centre track in game in the sand. The whitegate which gives its name to the camp is just visible behind the kids where the track winds on into the circle of tin sheds.
