headless man with balloons, tight wire, slack wire
Balloon Man
oil, acrylic, molding paste on panel

When this piece was in the studio little children are so drawn to the headless man that in order to keep dirty little fingers off, I had to hang it high and place plants in front of it. Adults seem more captivated by the balloon heads and the possibility of assuming different identities.

The balloon faces depicted are from my own family.
