Inspiration for The Idle Hours
The Idle Hours depicts male and female figures interacting in an abstract environment. The purpose of this piece is to encourage communication amongst friends, neighbors, strangers and lovers. In a world dependant on technology, at times we forget how to simply interact with people on a daily basis without utilizing cell phones, texting or email. Each figure is dressed in fashionable attire dated from the early 1900’s to 1950’s when technology first became a prominent attribute that has changed daily life indefinitely.
