Figurative Snapshots - All images Copyright to Ev Hales
Living in the 21st Century offers an artist a smorgasboard of fabulous images with which to work. Modern life is full of contradictions - the overlays of old and new especially evident in the European images. Moments that happen everyday in a world full of pattern and richness. I love to stop and absorb such moments as purely 'today', eg the smoker in " No Man's Land' taking his break, having a cigarette, out on the wet pavement, the only place left for this, now anti social behaviour. I am sure that in the future even this space will be out of bounds. The shopper standing with bags at foot, waiting. Many of the above images are details from larger works.
