Overstreet’s casual painting style belies an astounding authority and confidence. His solidly balanced compositions and fluid showoff gestures create precarious illusions where imagination and form meet. In Flattering Turtleneck a stylised portrait dissembles into contrasting associations to billboard signage, aboriginal hieroglyphs, and decorative patterning, flaunting Overstreet’s expansive lexicon of painterly vernacular.
