Rick Beerhorst Painting

2013 ArtPrize Entry
2-D Short List

This is a triptych painting that reflects my on going interest in making paintings that suggest an enigmatic narrative that allows the viewer plenty of room for interpretation. Books are a symbol of the desire to understand deeper truths. The industrial back drop relates to my personal experience of living through the past two decades of Americas industrial decline and loss of manufacturing. The simple domestic ritual of folding laundry eludes to the beauty that may still reside in simple domestic chores.
