This piece was inspired by the feeling of stillness it creates - the skiers are halted in time both physically and mentally. With some irony it symbolises the togetherness that some people feel the pandemic has brought, but also the isolation that has been trust upon so many. The pandemic has effected everyone in different ways - some have been left heartbroken and some frustrated. These skiers symbolise the potential inside us and hopefully offer some escapism in a world of unknowns. I wanted to create a snapshot in time which is why the painting appears so busy and has been named Watchful Waiting - a promise of the good things ahead of us.
