Arty Gras

"Our Heads Are Round So Our Thoughts Can Change Direction". This quote stuck out to me just as much as the number of dots in this painting. The dots add the festival feel that Francis Picabia was aiming for. I like how his artwork will be presented at the MoMA but amidst a party with a live performance, drinks and Mardi Gras mask. The eyes of the people in this painting creep me out however they compliment each other like a puzzle piece which could signify that they are meant for each other.
