CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A hard edge Pop-inflected realistic acrylic painting of three portraits of men wearing red fezzes in an octagonal shape composed of vibrant bold blue, red, and green colours of strips and blocks in the centre against an orange background. The centre bust portrait is front view, and the other two are three-quarter portrait views. The text [SHRINERS] is written in red capitals above the centre portrait and [MOCHA] below it, the number 223 under the left portrait, and the number 462 under the right portrait. Trottier used a projector to create this work to ensure precise rendering and measurements, and it reflects his incorporation of geometric abstraction.
