Keeping Up Appearances

from £44.95

Limited Edition Artwork

Back when living in quintessential suburbia, with my family amongst all the other suburbanites in the neighbourhood, I had a vague awareness of the importance of ‘keeping up appearances’ all the adults had. They were preoccupied with, dutiful waving, re-polishing cars, and trimming the hedges again. I understand the subdued aspirations more now. The finale song in the Kinks concept album ‘Arthur’, Arthur finally settles in his modest ‘Shangri-La’ after a life of toil and hard work: ‘Put on your slippers and sit by the fire, you’ve reached your top and you just cannot get any higher’. I wanted to reflect on the complications in suburban life, of hyper class-sensitivity and the typical, heroic British every-person who tend to their Eden.
