In 2008, Charles Williams accidentally recorded a conversation with his friend the artist Joe Skipping, whose later suicide caused a brief media sensation in the early part of 2009.

About

In the conversation, Skipping appeared to be confessing to the murder of his part- ner, Camilla Kendall, who had up till then been thought to have slipped on a cliff top walk near Fishguard in Pembrokeshire and fallen to her death, in 2001. Skipping’s elliptical confession was undiscovered on Williams’ phone until quite recently; the police, after be- ing apprised of the content of the recording, have decided that as both parties are now dead and their daughter has now achieved majority no action should be taken, but Wil- liams has been left to make his own sense of the situation, which he has with this group of paintings.
