Sandow Birk

I’m loving these paintings by California artist, Sandow Birk. Steeped in American pastoral landscape history, these modern works of correctional facilities (yes, prisons) creates a great juxtaposition: beauty vs. bleakness. Click through his other works- also rich with criticism of American culture and events.
