Here's the story: The composition is round and called Lou's Barbershop as an homage to a Washington , DC artist that I met while working at the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum. It was around 1982, and the museum was doing a retospective of the work of Washington screenprinting artists Lou and his wife Di Stovall. I designed the exhibit and the exhibit catalog and poster that contained an original work signed by Lou. I got to know him and Di and began a long friendship with him visiting his studio and hanging out, occasionally helping him stack prints and otherwise enjoy the bohemian atmosphere of the art world. Ah, the smell of inks I watched him do his amazing drawing technique into the screen block-out that created his 27-color passes of intricatre screen prints. Stovall's work is always circular and includes an occasional anatomical part in shape or line. I not sure why I decided to do a barbershop theme, but but I knew I would make it round as an homage to Stovall's influence on my creative experience. The barbershop in African-American culture has always been a place to gather information and transfer information and knowledge from the old to the young. So I made this scene reminscent of my barber experience. The round composition allowed me to create a mirror effect as one looks at the main subject in the foreground but reflects the activties in the corner or opposite side of the shop, distorting the entire composition elements so the fit into the round shape in upper and lower perspective. This perspective distortion reappears in other works of mine, recalling the work of M.C. Escher or Thomas Hart Benton that allows me to bend space and include visual elements in the composition to complete a story.

I would like to see more of this, thank you.

Brian, thank you for sharing your art. I would love to hear the story of this title.

There's a story behind the format and the title. Would you like to know it? Brian

Loved this onesie. Actually loved it so much I contacted the designer and had a special request to see if he could change the color of the FJ40 to match a friend of mines actual truck and he was more than willing to do it. So I ordered another onesie.

Artist's Description

A 3-color (red, brown and violet), 14.375" DIA. circle-format, hand-pulled woodcut of a barbershop scene. The view is as if through a circular mirror, with a barber cutting the hair of a young boy in the center foreground, while elements of the shop environment - an old TV, checker-players, ceiling fan - are reflected in the mirror's edges, that reveal the interior composition, recalling influences of William H. Johnson (1901 - 1970). The print is signed 15/15 in pencil, dated 1986.
