Acrylic on board, 23x41cm
Between the viewer and the natural landscape beyond, is a barrier consisting of petrol pumps and metal poles, which represent the artificial modernised world. The imposing position of these artificial objects is causing the viewer’s attention to be diverted from the natural landscape. But, the artificial objects are out of focus, indicating an attempt by the viewer to see beyond this imposing barrier. But is this an ironic effort? What lies beyond the oppressive barrier? Deep into the horizon, barely visible and a very long way away from the viewer one can barely make out what could possibly be the towers of the True City.
