Wow, I am picking up so much from this piece! The contrasting colors really make a statement about a contrast in beliefs of the depicted men and the world around them. The combination of blue and orange stand out harshly against each other, and the red creates a stark sense of danger. The words printed on the artwork are place upside-down possibly signifying backward beliefs. The line up of men done in an almost playful way emphasizes their awkwardness. It makes me see them toy-ish, as if they are on display, have a dangerous mind, and yet are in some sort of disguise...

Am I anywhere close? Truly amazing!

Your intrepretation is much more interesting than the truth of my intentions (or lack there of) for this piece...

So... Yes! you are exactly right!

;-)

And thank you very much for your comments.
