In Bits (For The Way We Live Today)
Acrylic and mixed media on deep edge canvas. 8 x 8 inches. Previously exhibited in London in Lubomirov-Angus Hughes Gallery. Partly inspired by a Centra slogan and the intensely fast pace of contemporary life. Contrast the convenience food with 21st century poverty, as represented by the auld one brushing the floor (even though she's 19th century, Ireland still harbours an underclass - normalising homelessness, for example).
Also features the corner of a passport that just reads "ach". An exclamation -
Ochón = a wail or lament in Irish language.
