The Best (or Nothing)

Karen Barrow's avatar Karen Barrow

"The Best or Nothing is a mixed media painting on a recycled Mercedes Benz hood by Karen Barrow . Barrow combines her own photography with with Abstract Expressionism to create her own Digital Expressionism. Peering through the layers allows the discovery of automotive and personal history. People, places and individual history are associated with the vehicles that we owned, loved, desired or fantasized about. In turn, these machines become historical touch-stones. Memories from decades ago or yesterday are intertwined with the metal and glass of an automobile.
