"It's a pretty small step sometimes to take something that is basic and make it something more meaningful," says Behrens. "And I think that's what Robert was doing in a painting like this, where he is taking things that are top of the mind and seeing if he can put them all together to make one cohesive thing out of it. And in Three Bean Salad, as weird as that sounds, he's actually done that."
