Standing billboard stucture. Acrylic, Oil, Spray paint, gloss, glitter and wood.
The back is exposed and I have allowed the viewer to walk around the painting. The painting is full of enegry and colour and i have allowed the paint to move in a variety of ways to play with different applications of paint to work of each other.
Working with images from Fassbinder's Querelle and contrasting it with the musical 'South Pacific'. I have also explored my interest in the Soho doorways and the persuasive techniques to draw the audience in.
I am interested in the idea of fantasy and desire while exposing the painting of its materials. Contrasting the 'promise of paradise' to the literal reality of the materials of the stucture. Exploring the idea of a 'fake' fantasy.
