The Ongoing Frustration, Oil on Canvas, 101 x 76cm
Inspired by real events. That intrusion to free human interaction. The acrylic shield. That’s all very well but try playing table tennis. The net, a small, flexible permeable symbol of separation is now replaced by a impenetrable transparent wall. The rise of alienation and frustration in the player, as each ball ricochets. I also found it interesting that the sport celebrities continued to play, hence a head-banded star waits to return the serve. How else to respond to the dissolution of our world as we had constructed it, into a space of guarded suspicion. Here is the way I see it. There is no fun in the echo chamber.
