The looseness of their description is of a piece with the painting’s title – the vagueness of ‘they’, the openness of ‘visited’ – so that the work becomes a way of embodying the telling of a story from the past; mishearing, generalities and slippages are built in. Landscape (traditionally a motor for narrative, a way of moving things forward) is, here, insubstantial, literally watery, and the blank space of the paper has a kind of obliterating effect, like a blind spot in the memory of the teller.
