MOVING BACK THE CLOCK

ALPERIN: CITY BIKE (FROM 2008)

It was in the middle of 2007 that I started work on this painting.

For some reason (most probably the fact that bike lanes had been built in my city and bikes had started popping up where before you would only see trucks, cars, and buses) the theme caught my eye (there is a vastly different City Bike II as well that came after).

It is a crazy bike. Speedy, splashing, rushing in the middle of a late afternoon in a big town. And yet there is no one on it.

It just rides on its own. It´s a new urban dweller with a life, mind and purpose that is separate and free from whomever theoretically owns it.

It´s leaving everything behind, lonely, purposeful, and yet we don´t know where it´s going. From our point of view, it is just passing us by, as if saying:”sorry, I have somewhere to go, another place to be”.

 

Until next time!
