Painting Adam & Eve painted by Laurens Barnard 2010
This Reworked oil Print Signed 2013 is highly collectable work of Laurens Barnard (laubar)
Despite an emphasis on humour, closer observation does reveal an underlying concern with the lesser apparent ambiguities of gender related issues, eg. half-moustached half bearded human males appearing with calculated regularity in his work. On a deeper psycho-social level these labile male depictions may be representative of the (currently debated) systematic disintegration of our long established feminine phobic patriarchal culture.
