I really like this piece. Kind of whimsical.
Kind of fun. I like the way the background is muted and is lacking in
detail, while the portrait has a high degree of photo realism. Together
it make a nice juxtaposition. But best of all, it makes you want to try
to hang a spoon on your nose, doesn't it?
I like this piece; it's a wonderful color, and it's whimsical, in a
way. Sometimes it reminds me of a large, red spider, a
lurching its way across the library plaza. Kudos to the
commissioners for choosing a sculptor with imagination!
