This is a collage-painting that I completed a while back & it's only now that I've had photos of the full painting to show you.
'Pleasure Land-Little Apples Will Grow Again'
Handpainted detailing ,houses, trees,balloon ,apple,swirl design etc & then I've used 1917 music manuscript, 1950's magazine images ,old tea-stained lace,string and various other ephemera to create a concept randomly reflecting the world's general 'mood' so to speak,- a melting post of notions loosely as so..
Burst Balloon..it's all hot air...the bubble has burst The Church Café (detail)...solice...or not. Madonna and Apple(Centre detail panel)...The Big Apple (centre)..Stockmarket Crash...Forbidden Fruit...Man on Bended Knee(centre detail)..'what MORE can I do? Help me? Why? Now All are Sleeping (Houses) Burying our heads? Resting..waiting 'til all is calm?...recovering? Time...out of-? In-? -left?
It's inevitable...that Little Apples Will Grow Again
