Secured Liberty

After his "Power of Movement" opening at MUCA in Munich, Germany this past weekend Case MaClaim is back in his hometown of Frankfurt where he painted this stunning piece. Coming off of his show's themes of hands and pigeons, Case considers "street doves" aka pigeons a symbol of freedom, so here we are presented with the irony of caged freedom or "secured liberty." The photo-realism of the wall is on point and has wonderful depth with it extending down onto the sidewalk.
