Pencil, Pen And Acrylic On Paper | 48 x 44 cm

For a long time, I have been fascinated by directional road signs. The fascination is a mixed one between their symbolism and utility, and their frequent visual overload in combination. I have previously explored their use in 2 and 3 dimensional interpretations and assembled their use in surreal formats.
However, right now, 40 metres under the suburb of Rozelle in Sydney, breathes the assembly of possibly the world’s most complex subterranean “spaghetti junction” being constructed over multiple levels.
My plan was to interpret this new construction using chevron road signs. As I worked through this, I imagined the earth being removed and this then led me to imagine the dirt, rocks and clay as the “meatballs” weaving through the “spaghetti”.
