The Henry Hargreaves Game Over art piece takes board games that most grew up playing and removes all the images and color that decorated them. What your left with is the structural bare bones of the toy. The simple construction of the pieces that are the backbone behind what made them so enjoyable.

Without the clutter and visual noise from all the colors that usually splatter the surfaces of the popular childhood games, viewers are forced to pay attention to the sculptural contours. Your eyes focus on the ways that the parts connect with one another and the harmony of the geometric shapes. The solid pastel colors that cover the entire surface of the objects in the Henry Hargreaves Game Over art collection are friendly and welcoming.
