Installation: Found Objects, Metal, Paper, Kinetic, Wood on Iron, Paper, Wood, Other.
This artwork is a collection of diverse objects: a used paintbrush, a fragment of red roofing, a piece of twisted metal, a dried leaf, and vintage oiled paper tool envelopes with vivid red print. These items hang freely from old twine against an ochre wood background. It is framed in a stressed wood frame. These articles harken back to hardware stores and old workshops.
The colors and textures inspired me to combine them into a work of art. The title comes right off the red label naming the hardware store: True Value. I think these simple objects all contain true value.
