This historical painting by the great Kyle Field has taken on great significance in our little household. Whatever his original intentions, or non-intentions, sitting there doodling ink at the kitchen table in 2001, he delivered the perspective-skewing eye contact of this floating head that has been with us for about 20 years now. It’s a signifier of wonder, not knowing, befuddlement, weird beauty, malice and rapture. It’s a symbol of whatever you want, but around here that’s what it’s for. I look at it and feel love. Maybe for you it could just be a shirt that says “I like the music that goes with this picture, wink wink fellow nerds.”
These ones are on natural white. The face is getting closer. It looks like the shirt itself is the shape, the cloud-head. Confront the people in your life with the question: “what is looking at me and why?”
The shirts are extravagant 100% heavy organic cotton, made in the USA. The brand is “Royal Apparel”.
