This painting comes from an on-going series subtitled 'Scenes of the Passion' that record the places, rather than specific incidents, in Shaw's growing-up. Although they have the look of photo-realism, they have been altered through rigorous act of recall that renders them altogether different. The title of the series refers to the Stations of the Cross, and in a most literal way, the locations around the Tile Hill estate that he paints, are sites of Shaw's becoming himself, of separating himself from a place that he can neither leave not stay in.
