Barrage, 2009
oil on canvas, 36x42in
‘Barrage’ places the still, inwardly distracted figure within an almost aggressive visual assault.  The overwhelming confusion of retail glamour contrasts with, and highlights the figure; its forcefully eye catching display juxtaposed with languor and disinterest. I wanted to capture the fatigue and visual deafness that results from the tireless way in which we are bombarded by advertising and popular media, using this as an analogy for the wider cultural malaise.
