"Jack Vettriano seems to understand perfectly the stylish sexiness and intrigue that you get when high life and low life collide. There's a terrific frisson in many of his paintings: I love the narrative detail you find in so many of them, the way in which you form an impression on first glance that is revised and undermined as you take in the detail. A man straightening his tie as a woman fastens her dress could be a couple getting ready for a night out; but then you notice the cheap electric fire, the reflection in the mirror of the bare light bulb and another man lurking in the doorway, and an altogether different story constructs itself." Terence Conran, February 2008, Introduction in the exhibition catalogue for Between Darkness and Dawn.
