SUNSHINE MATCHBOX AND ACRYLIC ON CANVAS. 17.7×12.7×1.5cm.

SUNSHINE MATCHBOX AND ACRYLIC ON CANVAS. 17.7x12.7x1.5cm.

This is Number 22 of my matchbox series. This series was started last year, 2013, and is on-going. I intend to exhibit these pieces in October 14 in a one man show in Teignmouth. This work uses everyday things which have all but disappeared in todays world. They pay homage to a way of life and a visual and typographic archetype which was once taken for granted. By combining contemporary abstraction I hope that the pieces not only provide the viewer with a personal response to a starting point, but also show how the past and the present can combine to make us revaluate our visions and assumptions about today.
