Although painted without computerised assistance, the apparent hands literally determine a digital image that is also analogue. Unsurprising then that this ornately framed piece exhibits squarely in my particular "gesticular" series. I've chosen scattered references from my childhood so this may be me wondering aloud if such things have ever been gathered before by anyone in this way. Music is also referenced within the title as a corruption of the Kate Bush track that mentions dogs in the chorus. For your viewer bingo card look out for: A purple heart synonymous with the sometimes returned Vietnam war medal. Tubes of resin extruded to imitate that fresh-out-of-the-cellophane plasticine piping experience. Embedded backdrop colours inspired by toxic 1950s lino floors still around in the 1970s. The fast diminishing popularity of hand shadow pictures by children's entertainers in the age of hand-held distraction devices.
