Artworks in David Barnett's 'Boston Tea Party' series present a playful vision of one of the foundational narratives of the United States. In the image, colorful teabags outlined in black fall from above into a vibrant blue sea. Scattered all around are splatters of colorful iridescent paint, like ocean mist scattering light. Overall, this is a colorful and playful work that bridges past and present.
