Two Faces

By Meta_Morph
Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying the Summer. Many thanks for your votes, comments and awards on my last upload, much appreciated Smile

Today's upload some public art, I sought out on my travels.

In deciding a composition, I was attracted to the juxtaposition between the exploding metal head and the rather serene women in the painting looking onwards. It put me in mind of the face we put on for the world and the more complex private reality, that others rarely see.

The sculpture entitled Horizon Head, is by Jordi Diez Fernandez created in 2018 and is located in the Galaria Villa del Arts, on the edge of the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona.

Hope you like it, and enjoy the rest of your day.
Hannah Smile

Definite Wow factor! And it's a daring composition, allowing space for those bright lines on the left, less space for the main head to look into. Creative rule-breaking, which I love. I wish I had taken this...

Super B&W composition, I lke the placement of the head and the lead in by the horizontal bars. And the portrait in bottom corner completes the scene nicely.

I won't say that it's beautiful, but it is innovative and exciting, and I feel that many people will relate to the idea of a head exploding. I also feel it is being held together by a sort of scaffolding, and that's what a lot of us try to do, too - hold it together.

Hi Coleen, Many thanks for your lovely comments and User Award. I am pleased you liked it. I will have a look again at the colour version and see if it merits uploading, but it was taken with mono in mind. Hannah Smile
