Darren Doye, Finalist at Agendo Art Prize 2009


Darren's entry for the Agendo Art Prize - Reluctant Sale


Artist's Statement:

The painting, ‘Reluctant sale’, is a response to the uncertain times now facing many Australians. Depicted is a caravan covered in Melbourne iconic imagery and an old tractor in a grass field. A real estate style ‘for sale’ sign is placed in the foreground, making reference to the economic impact on rural communities. A darkening sunset symbolises the end of abounding economic success and the approach of an uncertain period. As the caravan rusts in the field alongside the tractor, these images become remnants of a more prosperous era. The Melbourne iconography fades in the face of the grubby, corroded caravan like ancient memories from a life long forgotten.
