Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Household, Ink and Gesso on Wood.

This piece was inspired by flim-strips / or timelines from comic books, where elapsing events exist within one frame. I also wanted the stark white and black pen to resemble the sort of scribbling you'd find in a bathroom stall or holding cell. I've always enjoyed the look of unfinished drawings and incomplete coloring books and so "close calls" uses a minimal amount of paint to highlight white figures. It has psychosexual undertones and depicts a woman who shuts her eyes amidst a dangerous scene where planes are flying in different directions and the sarcophaguses of other women are nearby. It could also be a modern illustration for tarot card eight of swords.
