Llyn Foulkes constantly creates and destroys, using unconventional and discarded materials. Made with recycled trash and objects found on the street, his work has an aura of authenticity. For this reason, at a certain point his canvases can no longer contain his compositions. The figures begin to emerge from the picture surface, and arms or ties hang beyond the frame. In Portrait in a Flat, made in 1977, the artist portrays a man whose dangling arm escapes from the frame and almost skims the ground. His hand holds a wallet that contains real dollars. His face is made of a collage of paper, and there are locks of hair on his head. The figure is literally escaping from the painting.
