    "Level Eight, Level Thirty, Level Thirty"

    "Level Eight, Level Thirty, Level Thirty"

    "Level 8, Level 30, Level 30"
    Brian McBay
    Acrylic on Canvas
    36? x 48? with 1.5? depth.

    Description:
    The elevator space depicted creates a private/public viewing space. In this painting three individuals define eachothers social status by apartment level. Several indicators are utilized to transform this mental struggle into something visible - the physical arm gestures between the individuals, the height of their legs, the redness of their noses, the size of the ties, positioning of the individuals, and the transparency of the ties into the background.

    the only thing I think would inhance the pic is if you drew ontop of it with ink.

    Very nice.

    When I was young, I could do all-nighters in my sleep.

    I don't know if I'm just tired, but three times I tried reading your description and it all just looked like a pile of words that repelled my eyes. So it's a good thing the painting looks awesome.
