The funky Gecko Gallery in Ajijic, Mexico, has a perfect solution to an overloaded electrical circuit and it only cost ten pesos (two five pesos coins) to solve the problem! I hated to ask to photograph the art, but I had no compunction about photographing their fuse box! Art is everywhere. I enjoyed my friend Mario’s two shows opening on the same night in Ajijic, and enjoyed other spontaneous photography “finds” as well.
Most of the masks kids made at our week-long camps for kids were stunning and you’ve seen a number of them on past blogs. There were a few, however, that definitely qualify as oddballs!
When all else fails, just slap a feather on the end of your nose and call it art!
Perhaps it is that one sinister eye peering out or the odd misalignment of the placement of the mask that gives this one an oddball aura. I also like placement of the painting behind which gives him the appearance of having one horn that parallels the drooping ear. Does that look like a goober coming out of his nose and a little green creature reaching up to grab it?
