Abstract Mannequin

Market Square, Cambridge 160830With mannequins, sometimes simplicity sells.  Independent shops, markets and stalls distance themselves from the high street with minimalist, abstract, conceptual figures.  Outlines, wire frames, straw bundles, glorified coat hangers become signs of alternative lifestyles and aspirations.  Sometimes the minimalist figure is taken to an extreme of simplicity, but, like a Picasso drawing, the essence of a version of the female form is captured perfectly.  The male figure defies reduction in this way.
