Abstract Cityscape oil painting by Atlanta Artist Joel Barr
History
Oil on Canvas
24" x 24"

On a city hike in Portland, Oregon, I spotted this wall plastered with notices of upcoming concerts, lectures, political thoughts, and more. The notices were on paper, pasted on top of one another, vying for attention. With time and rains, most had faded out beyond being legible. I thought that this wall was an abstract of history, a stack of clues as to what was going on in this portion of Portland in this particular set of months.
