Brian’s Dream

Notes:

In this ambiguous space, with no helpful perspective or foreshortening, there is not only experimentation with chalky textures and quirky overlaying of forms, but a joyful outbreak of visual punning. The “spanner in the works” is actual size, but Brian the snail is nearly as big as the dog’s hind leg! Scale is irrelevant when the narrative jumps from shapes to symbols to well known sayings and back again as the painting evolves….
