House of Spirits

"This piece was created a few months after the Covid pandemic, when the city was under lockdown.

The beckoning lights from a shut downtown bar at 8pm, glittered with a warm forlornness. I often have faces of people and pets on the windows of buildings in my pieces. As comment on the isolation many stroke survivors live in and also to create a subconscious feeling of being watched; as in the city you are never really alone.

However, in this piece I put faces and figures in every window, A memory of the life and activity that was once there and a reflection of those lost during the pandemic. The works title echoes this and is also a tongue and cheek reference to the abandoned bar. Witness to the once busy downtown street is only the viewer and a speeding car captured in a few strokes of paint."
