Barriers

acrylic on canvas
180 x 150 cm (70.87 x 59 in)

Artist’s Comments: I feel sorry for people who are not able to feel comfortable with other people due to their own strange fears. In order to avoid spiritual, intimate, or what ever you want to call it contact they put some sort of psychic barrier in front of the other person. The barriers can appear as sharp shapes or spiky barbs. They are tied together with deflective words. The people can appear to be conversing because over time they have developed a facade of interaction.
