Mona’s Ball

Jackson’s Painting Prize 2020
52 x 41cm

“Two realities are intertwined in this, upon first glance, banal setting. The life of the mind of the artist, represented here by the heroïsm of the pilot who, like a modern day Don Quixote, scrambles to fight paper planes in his own backyard. This image is juxtaposed with the triviality of his granddaughters ball, lost in the garden, symbolizing an entirely different reality.”
