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.
