The Art of Bureaucracy: The Bureaucrat

The Futility and Tedium of the Modern Office Bureaucrat

The Bureaucrat
Acrylic on Canvas (2012)

Painted during a period of prolonged internet outage, this faceless, featureless portrayal of the modern office bureaucrat captures the futility and tedium of sitting in a sterile cubicle all day having to check the weather app on an iphone if one wishes to know whether it is raining. Too bad there is no reception at the office. Note the dominating presence of the blue screen of death and the absence of economic incentives. Lean in for a closer look.
