Nigel Sense: Workers & Wankers - Art Collector

Nigel Sense, 'Wazza' 2018, Acrylic on canvas, 155 cm x 110 cm. Courtesy of the artist and Fox Galleries, VIC.  Fox Galleries is proud to present Workers & Wankers with new paintings by Nigel Sense that contemplate the contemporary iconography of the blue-collar worker. Whether pushing a trolley, pulling a forklift or lifting a box, the “common man” and his Sisyphean labour are frozen in time.

But the idea of the blue-collar worker is constantly evolving, and now faster than ever before. In this country, and increasingly worldwide, access to new technologies and social media have raised expectations. People of every socioeconomic status want better jobs, higher pay, newer cars and bigger houses, creating what Sense calls the “blue-collar wanker”.
