After Andrew

A reference to the ’92 hurricane, this work, made in ’98, also references the artist’s mentor at the time, Andrew Wyeth. It focuses on the transformation after both events and what destruction and bare essentials were left with one, and what enrichment was left with the other.  


Although seemingly just a painting of a cow, there is more to this piece from 1998. In this video, Bartlett discusses how this work is like a surreal self-portrait of himself. With many small details and symbolism to find within the work, it is much more than just a simple cow.
