“Bedroom of the Working Poor”
by artist Jim Stevens
Monofilament Painting (click on image for full view)
Acrylic painting on over 1,000 strands of monofilament line – each strand is anchored in the case with sterling silver.
The opaque and semi-transparent materials combine with empty space to create a work of art that appears both solid yet weightless – a captured shadow.
Like too many, for this man the reality of poverty made his car his home. The bedroom of the homeless is a very public place, not a sanctuary.
