SMOKYTHEBAR<Purgatorio, A Drinkingbout, National Gallery of Canada Collection, Sandra Meigs/1981>

Curator RAE JOHNSON: “It has the quality of much of the imagery of the era, with an interest in psychology and the human condition, especially its darker side.”  That’s the ’80’s for ya

“Smoky, the bar.  Are those tears in your eyes?  No, Smoky the bar.  They aren’t tears.”
