"Town Square" encompasses a vibrant combination of figurative and abstract elements. It showcases a woman wearing a wide-brimmed, colorful hat with a distinct silhouette. The woman has a bicycle which is loaded with a basket full of brightly colored flowers. The background of the artwork is abstract, with suggestions of architectural forms like a building to the left, while the right portion of the composition hints at organic shapes hint like foliage. Charlie Barr utilizes a cement background that gives the surface a highly textured and compellingly tactile quality. Dashes of red and various dabs and streaks of color animate the scene, bringing it to life with an impressionistic flair. The style is quite expressive, contributing to the overall dynamic nature of the piece.
