'Coming with me'
'Coming with me'. This is a submission for a show called 'No place like home'. The wood pieces are shingles off the house which expose the original orange paint from when we first moved here almost 42 yrs ago. The metal is the crankcase from my first dirt bike, a Kawasaki 100. The arrangement of the shingles and the crankcase suggest a soldier's grave marker giving a nod to my father who was in the merchant marine in WWII. The bovine jawbone is from the old barn no longer standing which doubled as a slaughter house 100+ yrs ago, there were cow bones and skulls scattered around which we would use to carry on with visiting kids ;). The chicken wire is from my chicken coop over 30 yrs ago and the wool woven through it is from Mom's last warp still on her loom.
