The image was painted from the scenes that early 2020 brought us; closed shop fronts, out of trade and outta market for creatives and most working class professions. It hit hard, the symbolic representation of the butcher shops counter tie in with my artist narrative ‘Hammysound’, the face, brand or shop front. Out of date produce, the final form for expressionism.
The form illustrated would be described as cartoon realism to mimic reality, but be saturated with vibrant colours to draw light to the grit of current conditions. The subtle details of the signs out front, and the sign on the door, all details of the same narrative. The same expressionism, deconstructed and re represented through semiology to affiliate the meaning through different notions and narratives. Different conversations, yet, that run parallel pointing in the same direction.
