Mixed Media - Charcoal, Pastels on Canvas
40.6cm x 50.8cm
From the "Quintessential Quirk" Collection—The flotsam & jetsam floating through the universe of my psyche, and other oddities. This picture depicts the sweet friendship between two men who are afflicted with microcephaly, a neurological disorder where the head and brain are abnormally small. This is the disorder that is caused by the Zika Virus when it infects pregnant women. These individuals sometimes are developmentally disabled and in the early part of the 20th century they were referred to as "pinheads" and often employed as "freaks" in sideshows. However, the sideshow gave them a purpose in life and the sideshow folk often became their surrogate family. And yes, these ARE MEN; most likely they were dressed that way due to incontinence.
