This painting depicts a shirtless figure with a big hairdo standing in a field, barefoot with arms open. Small flowers and weeds cover the pale yellow field alongside ochre trees, all under a purple brushy sky.
Chase Biado uses a highly saturated palette to paint fantasy beings that wander dreamlike spaces—an imagined world that combines fantasy and daily life. Biado's compositions realign the axis of beauty and ugliness, replacing the human figure with goblins and rat people that have full interior lives. The artist employs vibratory lines and rhythmic mark making to render the picture plane a psychological space.
