A little kid is pushing a car with a mounted gunner. ‘Playtime’ addresses the response of world leaders following events such as 9/11 or more recently in Paris, the downing of a Russian airplane at the Turkish border etc. Quickly, war is declared, planes deployed and it begins again. It feels like a little kid is over-reacting and without thinking, strikes. In this case the little kids are prime ministers or presidents who should know better. Who should sit down and think instead of sending their armies abroad. The very first version was painted in Dunedin, New Zealand when I was still going by the name SojournInNYC.
This motive is available as limited edition silk screen print and as an original on canvas.
