This surreal piece by Brian Sostrom is somehow both familiar and new at the same time.
This is yet another chair painting, something sort of sad about a chair sitting alone… of course this one doesn’t exactly seem to be sitting. This was another early experiment with glass beads on an acrylic painting. The image was created with a lot of thick translucent layers of acrylic, giving it something of an encaustic. This painting was used on the promotional flyer for the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Washington this year. The show was called “Shifting Baselines”.
