Weekly Photo Challenge: Share a shot that captures a contrast
Stark contrast of Allan McCollum’s Plaster Surrogates, National Gallery of Art East Building, Washington, D.C.
From the National Gallery of Art website: Allan McCollum (1944- ) is an American artist, best known for his Surrogates — multiple, related objects installed en masse as anonymous stand-ins for paintings or sculptures…. Plaster Surrogates (1982/1989) was the last large grouping available. McCollum conceived its 480 elements in 1982, then cast them and painted the black “images” within “mats” and “frames” in 1989.

Wow. Loving the contrast and angles, everything 🙂
Thanks, Karen! I can’t tell you how many pictures of that wall I took – people probably thought I was a little nuts 🙂 Glad you like the photos!
Hi Stacy. Planned to send you an ABFriday but work and now family gathering trip trumped. I think you’ll like it though. It’s the duck from my last post. I removed a bunch if sand from his nose plus other stuff.

No worries, Karen! You can send it to me now and I’ll start building the post 🙂
On the road again driving this time and depends on the wifi. Have to link to home to grab the original. Like the stark contrast from the national gallery. Very creative angles.
Have fun! And thanks, as always, for commenting 🙂
