Portfolio > Hyde Park

What is this phenomenon that consists of people trying so hard?

Hyde Park Series is a documentation of hipster activity from 2007-9. Most of them did highly mundane, unspectacular things with unnecessary amounts of pretentiousness. Others did more creative things, but with a similar quantity of arrogance. Most were white.

These paintings are large-scale. Paint is applied thickly to visually stimulate. Colors are garish while space around and the natural features of these persons are excited and exaggerated. But nothing extraordinary is happening.
