Additional Information

Two men are deep in conversation. One points to the other’s open hand, and the title makes us think he is reading his palm. It is no coincidence that they are impeccably dressed – Himid writes that her work sees her ‘Painting clothes for people in the process of making pivotal decisions… Men trying to decide on tiny decisions which may lead to huge commitment are dressed to the nines / Who is communicating with whom? Look at what they are wearing / What is the conversation? Read the colour and the pattern’.
