Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Deep 1.5″ canvas with gallery-wrapped and painted sides for unframed modern display.
This image is painted on a reinforced canvas with deep finished sides for frame-less display. Mars black, titanium white, raw umber, burnt sienna and yellow ochre are brought alive by touches of vermillion. Can you find the three standing figures and the six profile faces in the composition? Vertical lines reminiscent of product barcodes repeat throughout the piece as well, creating juxtapositions that raise questions: What is the relationship between people and commercialized products? Does the title symbolize a commercial comparison or a play on words “bar” and “codes” for social relationships after hours? The viewer can discover and analyze these relationships.
