There Ought to Be Clowns...

It's so important to be well-rounded. This is one of my most recent pieces of art. You can't actually tell from this photo, but when you view this up close the Seurat-like pointillism becomes apparent. I used blobs of toothpaste to create texture and then added dots of color to form the soulful expressions of these two clowns, who are forced to put on their happy masks to bring pleasure to those in power. This is just another way of saying that we're all clowns: colorful, masked, beautiful, dying on the inside, and yearning to be free.
