Napkin Art #27: “Top Hat” by Nancy Brackett
Strong, aggressive lines and a sense of teetering motion characterize Nancy Brackett’s Napkin Art masterpiece, “Top Hat.” Proportion and perspective cross visual swords in a battle for the eye’s attention, as the figure (a mockery of the Monopoly Man!) bursts free of one frame only to be trapped by another. Brackett has created an enduring symbol of American Wealth wistfully hoisted by its own petard. Also, it looks like I folded it, which is a shame. Thanks, Nancy!
