Nostalgia - Clear Channels
Clear Channels takes its title from an 1950s analogue radio communications system that use scatter wave and ionosphere signal propagation to transmit information over long distances.
It focuses on an era of design that predated computer technology and its all pervasive use for controlling our gadget driven society.
The work is a tentative step towards a larger body of work that hopes to access photorealist painting to reflect the era of chrome automobiles and their referencing of 1950's aircraft design. The huge derelict radio dishes at RAF Stenigot are symbolic of that reflection and transmission of nostalgic longing.
