The idea for this acrylic drawing came to me after listening to Radio National one day. A woman was complaining about a big Viagra sign that she could see from her house and which her small children were asking her to explain the meaning of. Since then I have realised just how prevalent (and ugly) those huge signs are in Melbourne. My Neighbourhood Watch piece from last year is in my head at the moment too -- probably as it's nearly a year since I made that and time for the 2010 Postcard Show. This time my house is based on one in Northcote -- I have an ongoing psychological issue with that blank style of building it seems.
I do wonder whether that fence should actually surround the house, instead of just sitting in front of it like that. I was trying to keep it simple, but might have lost something in the process.
