The Pole Dancers are Not What They Seem, 60 x 60 inches, Acrylic on Panel, 2014
The questionably dressed girls in the painting are from an abandoned motel on the Pacific Highway above the Redwood National Forest. They were part of a scene that was painted on the inside of a window of what was the resturaunt and bar. I put a Giuseppe Capogrossi pattern on the tree on the right. Picasso's owl is in the leaves. The tree on the left is a coctail olive tree. The title of the painting plays on a line from David Lynch's show "Twin Peaks".
