Contemporary painter Laurence O’Toole imaprts a surrealistic landscape scene which captures his classic motif of a red truck, transforming into a cluster of butterflies. This imaginary still life is suffused with glowing, pastel hues and involves a blush pink, sunset cloudscape in the backdrop. Providing a wonderful image of escapism, the painter delicately describes form with accuracy in realistic brushwork which creates an intriguing sense of the uncanny. There is an equivocal suggestion of motion and passage of time conveyed in this work. A combination of the nostalgic mode of transport and delicate subject matter makes this piece gloriously attractive and elicits a joyful, uplifting feeling. This original artwork is painted in oils on canvas, hand signed by the artist and is ready to be displayed.
