What I saw instead was the jungle of competing planes in which that gestural binarism is engulfed: not just the two chair backs in the front and the angled picture plane, but the stacked cement blocks, the wire mesh gate, the chair backs behind the sleeping man, the upturned carving and table edge to the left of him, the slightly different picture planes of the cheap religious images catching the light
, the side of the car with its differently angled windows (one dark and one light), the round plane of the upturned table in the left rear, the jumble of chairs in the upper left corner, the miscellaneous bits of molding beneath that jumble, the plane of the Monet-like landscape reproduction on the lower left.
