Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the front

The inspiration for this piece comes from a powerful image taken in Boston at the movie premiere for the film Black Mass. It shows a crowd of fans greeting movie stars all on their smartphones which is heavily contrasted by an elderly woman simply standing and taking the moment in. The image is a strong representation of our over-reliance on technology.

I have included the Christian Lange quote “technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master” to further highlight how powerfully and accurately this image demonstrates our failure to truly experience through this reliance, the perils of which are illustrated further through the adoption of Banksy’s robot heads. As truly experiencing is the core to shaping an individual this dependence could be detrimental to the individuality of human nature and force us to lose an integral part of ourselves.
