Marrakesh, a collection of 30 paintings in which I attempt to capture and record that magnetic and intoxicating ‘red’ city on the edge of the Sahara Desert, after a trip of discovery in October 2019. The text comprises of extracts from In Morocco by Edith Wharton, published in 1920. One of the major figures in American literary history, she gives a colourful and textured travel memoir, exploring the culture, history, and beauty of a Morocco of old.
