I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

Size (h w d): 48 x 36 x 1.5 in
Medium: Acrylic On Canvas
This is the third piece of the 'Neon Cowboy' series, along with "Everyone Turned When She Walked in the Bar" (SOLD) and "Portrait of a Neon Cowboy."
"The other two pieces had blacklight paint in them, and this does as well," Bryce explains, "but the coolest part of this piece is the shape of the sunglasses. Corey Hart should have been thinking about these when he wrote, 'I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can see the light that's right before my eyes.'
"This piece resonates with so many people. It creates a sense of nostalgia that they may or may not be able to articulate. I like making small, often overlooked objects big and significant. Sunglasses are a ballsy accoutrement at a dance club. By wearing sunglasses, you're telling the rest of the club that your future's so bright, you gotta wear shades.
