Riding the Tandem Bike, watercolour on paper, 28.5 x 40.7 cm, 2018. (Melbourne, Australia) The Good Room gallery
The work illustrates an individual who is cycling alone came across a group of characters who are travelling together on their tandem bike. It shows the contrast between being alone and being part of a group. I got this picture (Riding the Tandem Bike) in my mind when I read Pasha’s saying that she felt alone in class. Hopefully all of us can find our “tandem-bike-partners” no matter where we are.
