Over My Head
So many works of Art can be so incomprehensible. Everytime I go to the museums of Contemporary Art, I can see installations and “so called” works of Art costing an obscene amount of money. I honestly don’t understand them and I don’t get it. I decided to do a piece completely “over the top” to express my frustration about not understanding so many peculiar things about this world we live in.
Thomas Barbèy prints are developed in a traditional-chemical based process. Note these are not ink jet prints.
Sepia Print: Kodak Professional EnduraMetallic Paper. This gallery grade print has a glossy finish and metallic appearance that creates exceptional visual depth.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
