A bit curious. This sculpture is on view at Marble Arch. I could not find the artist’s name. How strange is that? I would like to know what the artist was thinking, but without his name, I have no way of looking up that information.
Was the artist “turning art on its head”? My initial response was to remember a poetry tutor telling me that my poetry was “on the nose.” I wasn’t familiar with the term and asked for an explanation. As far as I can tell, if your writing is too much “on the nose,” your specificity gives too much away- a bad thing when writing poetry – Better to drop some suggestions and let the reader draw his own conclusions. Hum.m.m….
Someone called poetry a “surly craft.” How true.
