24”x18” Acrylic on Canvas
Another inspiration through Dorthea Lange’s work. Two men of the thirties down on their haunches along a walkway, engaged in conversation, a café sign easily noticed, two other men walking towards them in the background. The division of the painting blue and red. A scene no longer in America even before the sixties. But still a scene very much a part of more the third world countries. I remember my father exactly in that position talking away, depositing his cigarette ashes into the cuff of his pants.
