I like the juxtaposition of the photorealistic hay bails next to the formlessness of the blue strokes on the canvas. It interest me how he has a kind of window reflecting the sky and then the photorealism of the sky dissolves into abstractness as it engulfs the hay bails. This painting is very mind probing because it challenges your perception of reality and shows “reality” for the big lie that it is. The greatest quality of this painting, I think, is its dreamlike quality of seamlessly melding form and formlessness together.
