Striking Modernist Photograph Signed Homer (Presumed Sculptor Homer Gunn)

Regular price $75.00

I found this last week in New Hampshire, and the more time I spend with it the more I love it, including for the sense of mystery induced by that out of focus rectangle in the background, which looks a bit like an illuminated Lite Brite board The seller knew that the piece was by a fairly well known sculptor/installation artist, and, signed Homer on the back of the board, I believe it was likely a piece by Homer Gunn (1919-2001), born in Woonsocket, RI, who studied at RISD and taught at the Deerfiled Academy in Deerfield, MA. Formally, texturally, tonally, I find it really a striking image, with a wonderful ambiguity of scale.

High gloss photograph, mounted on board. Photograph measures 9" x 7 3/4". Board: 15" x 20 1/4". Photo is in very good condition. Board shows just a little light wear along the bottom edge and just a little general age toning. A bit of glare caught in photos.
