“One day I had to drive into Vancouver on one of my delivery trips. As I was making my rounds to the galleries, feeling high about completing my work, I spoke to many people. Listening, I realized everyone was complaining about something or other. I started feeling weighted down by what I was hearing. On my way home, I thought it would be neat to have a place where people can complain without burdening other people. Thus this painting.”
This print edition is based on an original gouache on paper painting that Robert completed in 1987. The following quote explains the origins of the composition.
