The boiling pot
HSC year: 2014, ARTEXPRESS year: 2015
Expressive form: Painting
My work represents the city as a boiling pot of energy. The city will engulf you, trap you within its arena. The concrete pavement rumbles under the tremor of black boots, leather bound, buckled. Rubber, beaten tyres burn slowly, lining the streets like frantic ants. Staring down, intimidating you, the buildings above imprint their sheer dominance. Underneath the bustling surface, lost between the cracks, lie those who sleep alone on cold concrete. Advertisements boom, bellowing billboards scream ‘Buy me’ while you dodge through crowds of capitalist animals, hungry for success.
Influencing artists: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Brett Whiteley, John Olsen
