Photographic Study - God Bless America

Seward Johnson's art is best described as a mash-up of Roy Lichtenstein and Jeff Koons. He takes familiar cultural icons and re-imagines them in larger-than-life proportions. Here in New Jersey, the Grounds For Sculpture is dedicated largely to his work but his output is so prolific that it has bled out into the areas surrounding that wonderful space. Across from the Hamilton Train Station, Johnson's "God Bless America," an homage to Grant Wood's iconic 1930 painting "American Gothic," towers over the quirky intersection of Sloan Avenue and Klockner Road. Yesterday, we had good cloud cover and I was able to spend some time capturing this work of art from a couple of different perspectives and in both color and black and white. Enjoy!
