Acrylic and latex on canvas
132.1 x 170.2 cm

Using painting as a platform for wild invention, Overstreet’s Alibaster Plaster Caster dazzles with its Technicolor efficiency. Evoking a sort of psychedelic machine, acid hued geometric
shapes assert their form and function, each a vital component in the tightly balanced arrangement. As chunky blocks of primary tones anchor the scene, zippy stripes and motley dots refute gravity, giving Overstreet’s cumbrous futurism a sense of neon weightlessness.
