We are pulled between so many things that demand our attention these days and seem to take away the “real” life we have. This is my representation of this delima we have imposed upon ourselves.

    Oh my gosh, Richie—your classic cut-away perspective is chock full of fantastic elements. The woman on a Twister game mat, with hand plunging directly into technology, yet pulled the other direction by “home life”. I also love the apple tree outside, the train set, cat, and TV set showing a candle (vigil?) of all things; not to mention all of the toys and cars, in contrast to video games. You have an amazing imagination. Not only that, but you can draw like crazy! Double whammy.

  • The twister mat is an ipad and the television with a candle in it is in front of a fireplace that is unlit. The train set is going into an MBTA station (Boston MA. and seem notorious for being late, hence “Wait Training”) and the train is slowly pulled along by two people on a cart because that is about the speed at which the train travels most of the time. The other train (in the upper left) goes much faster. The two apples on the tree represent me and my girlfriend who have semi-matching apple tattoos. Lots of little meanings to things in my art as usual. Like the “lobster phone” for one of my hero’s Salvador Dali. The ducks holding up traffic as I have witnessed many times (and people honking like crazy because they don’t see the ducks up ahead and they honk right back). Some of our favourite books and movies/toys from childhood and today. The reflection in the right side is reflecting back an orange tree from my memories of a visit to California. Many, many, things to talk about in all my work and could go on forever. Thank you and quite happy you enjoy it!

    Wow, love seeing the work through your eyes. Hmm. Suddenly I see a face there, below the cord hole on the desk. Hidden treasures await the curious.
