Yes, those are small oil paintings of mine from the early 1980s. Wow, so long ago and much work done since then!
The water/swimmers theme at the time derived from a series of large charcoal drawings, and paintings I made in a swimming pool while on an artists residency organised by the Whitechapel gallery at a school in Hackney.
