This is a painting I started painting with an idea sparked from a painting I recently created, ‘Flock Party’, while painting this one I decided that the spots on the bird will be hidden by squares on the bag it’s stuck in. I originally had the idea to paint a somewhat sequel to ‘Corporate’ with a plain bag and then decided to slightly pivot.
I often keep my opinions to myself (during the moment) when I notice someones humouring me or so blinded by prejudice and told I can’t do something, so I painted the bird as pink spots and the viewer, not you the viewer, but the viewer within the painting decides that the pink spots don’t align with their prejudice and they decide to see yellow squares. So this bird is trapped in a bag of yellow squares. I think that people use prejudice as a form of comfort, despite hindering others. Your pink spots don’t align with their narrative so now you have to get out of the bag before continuing your flight.
