Auerbach’s fascination with urban landscape is essentially that of North London. Stretching from Camden Town where his studio is located, up to Mornington Crescent and the little villas on Park Village East, it is a corner of London that Auerbach has sought to capture for almost forty years. Without any intention of being a serial painter, Auerbach has repeatedly painted the same view, observing it at different seasons and in different weather conditions. He explains, “This part of London is my world. I’ve been wandering around these streets for so long that I have become attached to them, and as fond of them as people are for their pets.” (The artist interviewed by Michael Peppiat in Tate, issue no. 14, Spring 1998).
Returning almost obsessively to this specific place, Auerbach has made this part of London his own world. There is an extraordinary intimacy reflected in this wonderfully rich example whereby the artist invites the viewer to see the city through his personal perspective. Maintaining an absolute consistency of qualitative intensity in each of his works, Auerbach has developed his own unique language and through Park Village East, has immortalised a city.
