Parking. 2020. A/C. 40x30cm

Parking. 2020. Acrylic on Canvas. 40x30cm

My children used to say ‘parking off’…..implying chilling on the sofa with a cup of tea, tin of biscuits and a favourite video. Insouciant of homework and exams, they left me to worry. Regretfully as adults, ‘parking’ now means late appointments and traffic fines . 

 

In this work a parked plane divides the image in two. Horizontal parallel elements are repeated, keeping the large central light shape static whilst top diagonals vibrate. Since the travel ban, this image is reminiscent of a time long gone. Endless press releases showing neat formations of unused planes is frightening. I wonder if and how our society is going to recover.
