Painting: Acrylic on Other.
3 Nurses, fourth painting in the 'Better Than Life' series, a social commentary inspired by the observation of modern living. The addiction to digital devices creating a filtered reality.
3 Nurses takes a surreal and sinister view of how young the victims of the unreal reality are and how they're dealt with.
This project devolved accidentally after the first painting in early 2017. Painted in black and white acrylic on raw linen, this has since become a favourite and has continued into later works. The Apple used throughout the series represent technology and carries biblical connotations of sin.
Building the stretchers and stretching the linen is an important part of the creative process, to ensure quality of materials and to have created the work from scratch.
