From time to time, I have found it quite difficult to locate some of Conrico’s work, especially pieces that are buried deep in Easton. Recently, however, he has been much more obliging, painting in places that I tend to visit more frequently.
This piece, on one of the concrete slabs, up at the Purdown anti-aircraft battery is a rather nice Western scene, reminiscent of Films I used to watch as a kid. A long-time dead and desiccated body lies at the base of the letters CONRICO, with sculptured rock formations and desert sand as a backdrop. Atmospheric and great fun from Conrico.
