Part of a series of paintings which depicts different doors and different openings. Inspired by my walking journeys between home and the unemployment office in May/June of 2009.
They are done on canvases which originally were meant to be other images and have now received at least 5 layers of acrylic.
Personally, I find doors fascinating, as the face of a home or a place. They appear to say one thing about the place, but can present another upon entry.
This door is the third in a series of square themed doors. The simple theme behind this door relates to the juxtaposition of a radial dial which forms a locking mechanism, built into the angular/square frame. The influence is Asiatic while being structured into a heavy layered masonry wall. The door curiously has no handle, begging the curious question as to which way it actually opens.
