The Audience

The Paint used in these pictures includes a turquoise I have had since the age of seven. This was a poster paint made by Educational Colours and was used as a wash and in some detail of the 4 paintings. The paint is Australian made and I had 500ml to play with. My memories of television as a child are vivid. Watching Playschool I asked my parents if I could smash the screen to go into the television and meet the people in the program. Staying up past bedtime watching documentaries that I could not understand shaped who I am today.
