Portal and Stairs/Snakes and Ladders
Acrylic on board (framed in Victorian Ash)
105 x 105 cm
“This painting uses the architectural features of stairs and portals to create a visual narrative for the up and down nature of day to day life. My eight year old son said it reminded him of the board game snakes and ladders which made me smile, as that is actually a simplified, but accurate explanation of the meaning behind the painting. If you are not familiar with the board game, it is one where players take turns to roll a dice and move their pieces around a course. If you come to a ladder you go up and if you come to a snake you slide down. A metaphor for the unpredictable nature of life”.
