Hawkins Bolden

1914 - 2005 (MEMPHIS, USA)

Sightless Creole sculptor, whose fabrication of protective scarecrows - utensils with leather tongues and punctured eyes – defined a particular (non) art, intended to keep away avian intruders. Features works by this legendary artist include objects of scale, rarely seen outside museums. His work is held in the collections of the Smithsonian Museum (Washington DC) and the High Museum (Atlanta).
