On Route 901
2 - 20 October 2013
Opening Wednesday 2 October, 6.30-8pm
People have always fascinated me. The comings, the goings: the slow paced amblers, the fast trackers to somewhere. Joggers, cyclists, dog-walkers, pram-pushers.
And living on the 901 bus route, with a bus stop right outside my home, provides me with the perfect casual opportunity to people watch and provide me with the inspiration for my art. My portraits are not attempting to be social comments or even life-like. Instead, I try to capture the facial characteristics and essence of those using or waiting at the bus stop with a light, humorous, elongated Modigliani-esque, mask-like portraiture.
