‘Road Ahead Closed’
The beginnings of a project to develop works using signage in part inspired by, and referencing, that which appears in TV cartoons (‘Scooby Doo’, Looney Tunes, etc). This signage is in many cases ironic, its meaning inverted and intended to mislead, misdirect (a lure to a trap or ambush), or otherwise a warning or proscription, a literal deterrent.
By introducing ironic and absurd signage to my dioramas, I am able to ridicule and undercut the often sombre and portentous tropes of the Romantic tradition.
