This Head is Mine

I previously mentioned that I have a bad habit of not taking notes when I visit museums. It took me an hour of searching to find details about this head I saw at the Seattle Art Museum last August.

This is Robert Arneson's "This Head is Mine" from 1980.  Arneson specialized in ceramic art.  He made a few self portraits in this style.

This piece has lots of strange messages all over.

I played with a lot of settings on my Nokia 808 Pureview with these photos.  This is the only one that got the color right.

I find it hard to get a knack for close ups.  I picked the wrong spots to focus.


Artists are weird.  That's what makes them artists.
