Bent Over Crowddigital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2006

This digital painting feels different to me – I am not totally sure why – it is a pretty common theme now.

I see the workers in the fields every day – bent over swimming between the strawberry rows. I keep doing what I can to portray what I see and each time I approach it slightly differently.

This reminds me of a stamp somehow – the pattern of people and field – the repetition of similar body shapes – the coupled pickers – the same colored hats and scarves – each picker anonymous – each picker a cog, a clone – each one seemingly interchangeable – and yet the whole scene peaceful and pastoral.

Colorful art prints of this digital painting can be purchased only by emailing: specialorders@outhousestudios.net.

    In searching for related repetitive figures / clones found this – did a little copying and pasting – though not in photoshop. Since I mentioned stamps too – it seemed even more pertinent

    There is an image called “New Clones” half way down – but found these images kind of interesting – also the different resolution links
