This print is characteristic of many of the scenes Doug Webb creates. Often blending everyday environments such as bathrooms with natural and adventurous realms, Webb's work aims to create a juxtaposition between "urban living" and the "dream of utopia based in nature." This work portrays the dream of a nautical adventure and visions of an idyllic desert landscape confined by the reality of everyday life suggested by the bathroom sink.Physical Description
A hyper-realistic image of a sailboat with a full crew in a sink filled with water. The sail boat has an american flag on the back. In the background, behind the sink, is a formation of desert cliffs.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
