This painting reminds us of the reality of death in “Alcestis”, and how people tend to be apprehensive about being buried in a box when they die. ”It’s silly to be depressed by it. I mean, one thinks of it like being alive in a box. One keeps forgetting to take into account the fact that one is dead, which should make all the difference, shouldn’t it?” -Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Both the painting and the show include the presence of Newspaper. Do you know what Newspapers have in them? Obituaries. Connections to death, we’re delving pretty deep, guys.
Ok, so this painting shows the colors of life and the lack of color in death… we think our insights are getting a bit far-fetched.
The striped pattern represents curtains on a stage. Alright, we get it already. “Alcestis” is a play.
We don’t even know anymore. Over
(Even though our little intern brains couldn’t keep up with these paintings, they’re wonderful pieces of art painted by Anne Baumgartner and Marshall Roemen)
