abstract triptych oil painting by Joel Barr Atlanta artist
The Creative Third
Oil on wood
6" x 21" each

With this group of three paintings, I was exploring ways that we can connect with each other. The first is to find what we have in common--the red line. If that doesn't work, we can try to force things together--thumb and fingers symbolizing that effort. Finally, with a creative third way, we come around to a softer approach which uses gentle curves to take away all the rigid borders.
