Fear of Leaving Home (Strach wyjść z domu) – Barbara Cabaj

2023, oil on canvas

The painting has been inspired by media reports of a potentially deadly threat – tropical spiders hidden in supermarket bananas. Sensational, clickbait headlines from the internet, designed to generate as many views as possible, heighten the impression that the world is in fact the realm of Hunger Games.
