This work by Chris Gollon has been selected for the exhibition 'Emergence & Transformation', since it perhaps holds a warning as we emerge from lockdown. During lockdown a new word entered the English language: "covidiot". The covidiot term is applied to those who ignore the social distancing rules, putting both themselves and others in danger. As we emerge now, they are no doubt still out there, just as they were during lockdown. This image of such potential trouble may help us stay vigilant, and cross the road when 'Trouble' saunters up.
Chris Gollon was a was a master of the comi-tragic in much of his work, using humour to shed light on more serious universal themes, yet his figures always retain a certain human dignity.
