The Art of Persuasion

By Trudy A. Martinez

 London, England. 1990  

The disarrangement of layers of garments of what appears to be this man’s entire wardrobe encourages a perception of a hastened escape.  The unevenly buttoned overcoat adds emphasis, ringing out a concurring sense of rush.  But regardless of what his dress hints at, the sign next to him conquers his will to continue accordingly.

  

As a result, the uniqueness of the moment renders the words, Time to Relax, triumphant.  This is demonstrated by the man’s huddled posture resting on the bench while his hand is clinched on a plastic bag that is resting on the ground.  The position of the man and the bag, in addition to the caption (Time to Relax), suggest the Art of Persuasion has been fulfilled.
