Road to nowhere

Janne Kearney

Artist Statement
Pointlessly throwing coins in a wishing well, making birthday wishes, wishing upon a star.
Only finding broken wish bones, broken dreams, broken hearts.
Take me away, run away… off to the moon and the stars.
Don’t want to leave, just want to stay, I’ll find a place, gotta get away.
Running all the time, where am I running to,
Somewhere no one knows, there is nowhere to go.

About the Subject
Teah Raeburn is a model I have painted many times. The bus was dumped in an abandoned factory yard and covered in graffiti.
