16 x 20" - NBD, Me and a Peasant with a Wheelbarrow, acrylic on canvas.
The Selfie Series is an on-going series by Molly Gray, that questions instant media culture, often juxtaposing classic known works with the stark interruptions of “the selfie”. These satirical pieces playfully challenge the viewer to question how our culture's values have shifted over time. The Selfie series also aims to start a conversation on how ones online persona is often a façade compared to real life. Gray wants to break down the online wall that only shows life’s best highlights, and not the struggle of everyday life.
This piece bears the likeness to Jean Francois Millet's Peasant with a Wheelbarrow, 1852.
This is an original painting that is ready to hang.
