"Spring Loaded" - Rodeo Buckin' Bull scrap metal sculpture by Frank Cole
Original scrap metal sculpture of a rank ol' rodeo bucking' bull. A huge part of Western heritage and the cowboy lifestyle is the rodeo. Cowboy started riding horses to break new stock, this soon turned into riding the rankest bulls. 8-seconds is the entire contest and the best buckin' bulls like Airtime, Redrock and Mr. T were only ridden a couple times their entire career.
Starting with reclaimed scrap metal and wood, Frank takes these simple discarded boring items and transforms them
into a beautiful new wildlife sculpture, cohesive from all angles This is the essence of strategic thinking.
Through textures and movement my goal is to allow the viewer to subconsciously fill in the gaps. A little cowboy rusty impressionism.
Metal is picked around old homesteads and working ranch's in the Western US as well from my travels around the world. My sculptures have featured reclaimed metal from Argentina, South Africa, Jamaica and Europe. There is not place I visit where I am not picking discarded rusty metal.
