Collection Note:
K-Tel Volume One, almost comical in its portrayal of a traditional “working man”, shows Barminski once again creating a relatable landscape of both strife and melancholy within the motifs and values of American life. The muted colors only furthering the depicted man’s sense of despair for his tried routine, Barminski quickly calls into question the long-term value of a classic 9-5. While it is clear the man desperately wishes to leave his cycle, he remains trapped in the time and place of this composition, because like many, he has nowhere else to go.
