Generally my work does not address these two men, but since I was making a piece in the same area that I grew up, it made sense to change that. I painted cartoon portraits of my grandfather, father and myself wearing checked woolen jackets and tuques. I used found wood that had weathered and carries the same sort of patina that my entire home area boasts. I also incorporated empty ammo boxes and a few squirrels. No matter what you are hunting it seems you see more squirrels, unless of course it is squirrels that you are hunting.
Below are a few images of the installation.
I was very pleased to include the ammo boxes and very interested at how they interacted the same way that the block constructions had earlier this year. Yay for rectangular prisms.
Squirrel glamor shot. He's so perty.
There will be some more images coming. I took some better photos that I will be scanning in soon. Tomorrow the summer intensive starts. We'll see what we can get done then.
