Do You Realize?
Barbara Reinhart

Do You Realize?

The artwork, Do You Realize?, is a 40 x 60” oil painting on canvas completed in 2011. It combines the observed and the invented depicting five figures gathered around a kitchen table. The open-ended narrative seeks to invite the viewer to participate in making connections between the figures. The process of seeing may be combined with memory, recognition and reconsideration of the familiar as the visual relationships are explored. Barb’s painting, Do You Realize? is located just to the north of the Rotating Art Wall. Acquired in 2012.
