PUERILISM

Category: Anton Exhibit

From the artist: "This is based on a painting called "Indiscretion," but with significant changes. The story goes that a window dresser for Bonwit Teller committed a certain act of passion with a mannequin, for which he must pay through successive incarnations. The dirty laundry at the bottom of the wall forms multiple images -- both a chin and, seen another way, a mouth. When the upper shadow is thought of as the mouth, the face's expression is quite pleasant.
