George Gittoes | The Capsule
Size: 183 x 214cm

"The Capsule along with Mattress (San Francisco) is a very literal return to two works in The Hotel Kennedy Suite and the period 1968-72.
Sigmund Freud sits on the lap of the naked female figure like a small child with its mother.
The Apollo astronauts have said how fragile the Earth looked from space. They have compared it to a spaceship with all life, human and animal, as its passengers in the vast void of dark, empty, lifeless space.
With the threat of global warming and environmental disaster the sense of being in a capsule is even more severe in 2021." - George Gittoes
