Collection Note: A Special Offer depicts the seemingly tantalizing “offer” that awaits those who chose to work towards the societal understanding of success. Barminski purposefully dehumanizes his subject through his “Micky Mask” , a symbolic and well known trademark of his work. This coupled with the cleanroom suit has various implications for the consequences of this workaholic lifestyle, from the aforementioned dehumanization of the subject to the function of a cleanroom suit and gas mask being to keep impure things off the body. In a quintessential Barminski style, the striking pastel phrase accents the overall dark composition, bringing forth a quiet irony within the work.
