Envisioning looking through the eyes of a child. As a child you engage everything differently, often without any judgement or reflections. Which is contrasted how we see life as adults. The memories build up from earlier experiences are often a guidance in how we approach the world, but we forget how to see without assumptions. I try to symbolize this contrast by balancing in between using toy related images in my art combining with the social discomfort in life. The painting I made is a metaphor for a happy thought you have had as child fantasizing about cars and playing with that. The appearance is a 3D mural painting combined with 3D anamorphic techniques on the floor representing a stack of pimped toy cars still in their boxes, ready to be approached and played with by the audience.
Combination of anamorphic technique on the floor and trompe l’oeil technique on the wall. Painting was made indoors at the office. It looks like the girl is still creating the mural, she still has to fill in the blank parts on the grid with some colors. The girl is wearing a dress with the colors of pride of the Seattle Seahawks.
