Packit – Jack Waddington, Camberwell College of Arts
Mixed Media on Canvas / 160 x 160cm
Similar to a child seeking security in narratives whilst watching cartoons or playing with toys, this panoramic offers an escape from reality. It is a portrayal of a jittery mind and a restless state; hence the world’s name ‘Packit’, reflecting the dense packaging of content. The artificial polish has a duality between a child’s aesthetic and the superficiality of an anxious community encouraged to innocently absorb themselves in joy.
