In his artworks, Earl McBride embraces similarly simplified expectations., though not without first coaxing-sometimes wrestling-them into submission. His use of materials, expressionist mark-making, and choice of colors are all strong compositional elements that make direct refrence to a personal narrative without restoring to overt, didactic representations.
