These paintings give me the creeps. Its as if you’d been thrust into a planet that existed in the 1950s. Not the real 1950s but some kind of 2 dimensional version. There is nothing behind the images. No foreboding. No sense of social injustice or ecological disaster. Exactly the way the 50s operated. People had just gotten out of a world war and they did not want to face any more issues. Especially in the suburbs. Which became iconic for looking forward. As if there was no past.
