Duane Hanson

It’s true that I am easily amused. It’s also true that I totally enjoy Duane Hanson sculptures, if only because they never cease to be funny and poignant. Except for the junkie. That one’s not funny. The first time I saw one of his pieces was when I was a teenager, maybe 12 or 13, at the Hartford Atheneum, and I was convinced that the woman sunbathing in the museum was insane. When she didn’t move for a while, I cracked myself up. What can I say, I’m a girl of simple pleasures. Simple, fiberglass reinforced with fiber resin pleasures.
