This sculpture is located outside of the American Visionary Art Museum. The museum is a quirky, creative, odd, fun space in Baltimore exhibiting untrained artists. I try to find interesting places to go every time I visit. So on a recent visit we spent a very nice day at the museum. I think we were all impressed with the museum.
I particularly like the way the lines in the sculpture give the impression that the face is in the wind, in motion, or otherwise being “swooshed” away. I think the short depth of field and centering of the sculpture really brings out the distinctive features and they eye would almost expect a human face to be there. I chose to convert to black and white to focus on the contrast, enhancing the starkness of the sculpture and the detail.
