No Need to adjust your Screen, Paintings out of Focus

Amazingly different subject matter for unique paintings.
South African Artist Philip Barlow, takes a completely different view of how to portray his subject matter.  All of his images are out of focus, leaving the viewer with questions about what exactly are they are looking at.  For example, what do the people in the painting look like?  What are they actually doing?  Where are they going?  Looking at the picture in isolation, without context, is one things, it is not until you see them in their surroundings, in perfect focus, that the painting has the most effect.  Have a look at the image above and the ones below, to see what I mean.
