Mr. Duality























In the words of the immortal Bobs: "I don't want to have multiple personalities. Two is enough!"
This image was inspired by the song & by a Mexican mask that hangs on my dining room wall. It's acrylic on text from an old slide rule manual, collaged to canvas, about 5x5.5".

The singing group The Bobs?? Love 'em, need more of 'em. Paper or plastic?

Great work! Perfect for Oscar night, as it reminds me of the two acting masks, the happy and sad one.

Your artwork is amazing! It does seem that we all have 2 (or more) faces to us. Sometimes it is hard to keep that happy face showing!

The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a metaphysical and esoteric concept referring in part to the ajna (brow) chakra in certain Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. It is also spoken of as the gate that leads within to a cup of tea and also inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.

The third eye is often associated with visions, clairvoyance, precognition, jogging, and out-of-potato experiences, and people who have allegedly developed the capacity to use their third eye are sometimes known as Marjorie.
