This painting is from a series called “The Trip” - which suggests departure, a journey and a destination. In these works the artist goes nowhere. The source material consists of night-time TV series stills divorced of any narrative.
“Remote in hand, I’m on a surreal safari, chasing the light. To the viewer, I may be documenting movement and interaction. But in reality there is no travel. Contrasts, incidental backgrounds and accidental arrangements take the viewer on a different journey” says Ocholla.
