Please Take A Seat

Martindale M., (2015) Please Take A Seat , mixed media
Price on Application
PLEASE. TAKE A SEAT a new work from one of London’s newest,  freshest artists. Wittily referring to the ambivalence found at the intersection of the indefinite and definite articles.

Tantalizingly we are left uncertain as what to do -  take the seat to the dump or to be seated for an indeterminate wait for some undeclared service - the work is redolent with ambiguity

PLEASE. TAKE A SEAT has a commanding presence, asking questions, demanding answers (those capitals are not without purpose) , the spectator cannot be neutral, they are drawn in by the command, no matter how courteous the command resonates PLEASE! TAKE A SEAT!
