Artist's description:

This work is one of a series of oil paintings interrogating collective fantasies dominant within Western culture. The subject is appropriated from a found photograph, but with contextual references absent or removed. By re-presenting an image that is initially perceived as unproblematic, the viewer is encouraged to invent possible narratives: fantasy revives the scene, allowing innuendo and a heightened sense of drama to extend meaning beyond what is depicted. Fantasy, then, is co-opted so as to return the viewer to reality, and to consider the banal and quotidian in new terms. The painting’s realism becomes a means to not only engage the potential of imagination, but to explore the potential for significance.
