something in passing [found art]

The longer daylight hours, as we progress towards midsummer, afforded a few moments early one evening to stop and examine this piece of found sculpture or installation (to add to my image collection) – something I have witnessed being constructed over the last few months. It’s a strikingly robust ‘builders’ intervention in the rural landscape; a construction seemingly put together for only practical purposes, but nevertheless it is visually and aesthetically harmonious, a textural mosaic of corrugated metal sheets… I trust that its collaborators will continue to add to it over the next few months; its future reconfigurement or final deconstruction, when viewed over the course of days or weeks, will be quite interesting to observe.

On closer inspection, any number of found paintings could be artfully composed with a camera…

all of which refer back to my ongoing  farmscape paintings…

modularity will be my modus operandi…
