Artist Statement Synopsis,
This series expands on the my first stadiums series. It expands and evolves the emotional aspects of the first pieces. The paintings accomplish these changes by altering key aspects.
The colours change from contrasting to monochromatic, which create deeper, darker and drearier spaces. This forces the viewer to move slower through these spaces and have a greater emotional attachment. This changes the focus of the panels from the excitement of the game to the emotional struggles involved in training for athletics.
