I first saw Craig Flannagan's work nearly 15 years ago. I was managing an art gallery and he was part of our "stable". It was one of his lithographs that I chose to hang in front of my desk in the office. Something is always in movement in his works. The painting Door III calls up in me the ambivalent feeling of being embraced by/caught in a small space – an elevator, family expectations, one's own mind.
