Artwork Description

Pastel on paper, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

A self portrait of David in the final moments of preparing for his first street performance since the COVID-19 pandemic began. David's artworks contain a temporal narrative, with past, present and future flowing from left to right. David sits at the far-right of the composition, finishing his costume in the present, whilst reflecting on the impact the past two years have had on artists and the community's engagement with the performing arts. A professional street performer since 16 years of age, David has never experienced such a break in performing. The William Morris-inspired background reflects the Victorian-era sensibilities of David's steampunk character as well as the vibrancy and richness the arts bring, once again, to our community and city.

*The piece is currently being framed, I will add an image of fully framed once I have it back.
