Motawi's March Tile | Puffin

 

Mid-century modern meets Motawi mastery in this, our March tile: a precocious puffin perfectly poised to pluck his dinner from the ocean.

"If you're like me, you never forget a face but can't recall the name, so you invent elaborate reminders. Take this funny looking bird with the false nose, the pasted-on eyebrows and the bright cheek smears — Emmett Kelly with feathers."

We are thrilled with this description of Charley Harper's 1971 image, The Name is Puffin.

6x8 Puffin is now available at our gallery shop at 170 Enterprise Drive, or of course on our website.
