“Helter Skelter”

“Helter Skelter” – Acrylic and ink on paper, 50cm. x 70cm.

The title came from the sixties White Album, but the image was inspired by a recent Paul Macartney concert.

Could I be going around in circles on this hectic fairground slide?  Where the satisfaction of conquering one challenge of Parkinson’s disease, is soured by frustration.  Knowing that I am riding the slippery spiral,  Helter skeltering towards many more challenges.

To quote the words from – Lennon / Macartney.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide

Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride

Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

 

Author: David Carroll - Visual Artist

David is a contemporary artist using many types of media to create abstract artwork. Born in 1947 in North Wales, he migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. After many years working in the electrical trades, David went on to further his education, graduating from Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). David and his wife, now great-grandparents, live in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. where David works in his studio most days. His abstract artwork is inspired by memory; not so much to depict specific events but rather, to reflect emotional situations that are infused by present moments of recollection. In recent times, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his work has taken a new and positive direction. His 'Elemental Representions" use colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create a personal visual story line.
