It seems to me that oil painting never
really dies.

There is something very beautiful and
raw about it - a definitive medium
in Art.

Shawn Barber is a very talented painter.
He brings what the common man perceives
as ugly - defacement/disfigurement
of ones self and puts it on a pedestal.

Revelling in the gorgeousness and lushness
of Art placed on the human form.

Being "normal" is just a shell or mask we wear.
But when we are stripped down to total
nakedness -
to our most vulnerable our true self leaks out
like an acorn in an Autumn storm.
