Out-of-Town: Looking at You



I was in southwest Florida this past weekend. There was a really good outdoor art show at the Bonita Bay Promenade.

Marc Sijan is a Wisconsin artist who makes life-size ultra-realistic sculptures from polyester resin.  People stand and stare.  It is hard not reaching out to touch the figures, just to be sure. 

It is also pretty hard finding a moment when the figures aren't crowded by people, to take a photo.

Glad you were able to get out of snowy CT! Hope traveling wasn't too troublesome!

I thought the lady with the red hair was real until I read the comment. Wow, I hope they come up to my area, I'd love to see this.

I thought that lady was real too! What a fabulous show. I know you enjoyed the weather!

JM said...

Very, very cool! The lady looks so real.

Interesting artwork. Not sure if I would want one staring at me in my home though. Enjoy the sun!

Hey that's really cool! Do you think I could have one done, put it on my chair in the office and me? Off to take photos of course! :-)

You got me! I would not have guessed the figure wasn't real. It's very well done.

They are perfect! I think ciel had a good idea about the use at work... For the same reason, of course!
