Parks, have always been symbols for different aspects of humanity for me.
During the covid-19 pandemic, when the whole world shuts down, I craved for that very sense of humanity and our connection to nature.
There is an oddity to parks, they are supposed to create a natural space for us urban folks, yet they are created, they are human-made and kept in ‘pristine’ condition by people. Not wild. Nature but not the wild kind.
I wanted to explore these parks, their differences around the world.
To be able to paint “en plain air”, I used the only method I know and I am allowed to use, through another human creation, Google.
I walked the street views with my "Googly" eyes looking for scenes; moving and shifting compositions to mimic certain ambiances. Distorted perspective has also been incorporated in my work as it is the trademark of having Google Views as frame of dimensions.
