In creating 'Before I Walk The Streets Of Gold', the artist aimed to convey a defiant longing and search for his true love amid his fears of dying unfulfilled, as well as visually constructing the work around an excerpt from a poem he had written, which inspired this work: ‘...How we used to talk of forever, never knowing what forever could bring. But however death may watch me grow, however life may let me go, before I walk the streets of gold, across the rivers, wherever you are… I am looking for you’.

Looming over the piece in the righthand corner is the bark of a tree standing as if it were the shadow of death. However, life lies suspended in the work as the saxophone - a symbol of music, inspiration and hope. And central to the work is the crucifix - a symbol of sacrifice and expression of love.
