Bob Dylan, Rainforest, 2010 © Bob Dylan. Acryllic on canvas, 101,6 x 76,2 cm


A room with almost all its shutters closed offers the spectator a narrow view of lush, green vegetation outside. The view is so restricted that you must take the artist at his word when he claims that the foliage behind the balcony banisters is in fact a rainforest.

Here, the artist plays on the opposition between what you know and what you can actually see. Our attention is also called to contrasts: The contrast between the warm browns, russets, and reds of the interior and the cool greens and blues of the rainforest, as well as between the cool shades indoors and the brighter light outside.
