Preliminary composition for a work in progress, acrylic on canvas painting.

This work presents itself as a comment on society’s prepoccupation with factors of impressing one’s peers with one’s taste, status and consumer choices. It serves as an appeal to expressions of understatement and modesty to counter brash, crass displays of luxury, wealth and achievement, reining in vulger displays of materialistic attachment.
