“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

Born in 1947 in North Wales, David migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. He graduated from Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). Davids artwork is inspired by memory; but rather than depict specific events, he reflects emotional situations, infused by present moments of recollection. In 2017 David was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, which has profoundly effected his artwork. He uses colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create a personal visual story.
