Making Faces

There has always been something fun, yet sinister, about the imagery of carnivals, the circus and side shows. That macabre element informs the work of Fred Stonehouse as well. Beautifully rendered, his work captures the "something" that repels us, but draws us in....into the tent to see the two-headed pony or a masterful painting.
