Dennis Geden, Two Faces, 1972
Two Faces
1972
Artist RegionOntario
DescriptionThe figures depicted in this work are deliberately distorted to unnatural proportions, which serves to add a sense of unreality to the image as well as obscure any markers of the gender of the figures. Geden's work is inspired by European folk art traditions, which often eschew realism in favour of stylization.
