Throw The Ball – Coppers From the Hood 2017.7.4

Car Hood, Copper Sheets, Acrylic Paint, Lamination

“The title of this hood is “throw the ball”, and the image is of a dog in play with a person. This has something to do with the fact that the two upper corners of this hood are physically dog-eared, that is, slightly folded over.

It often feels like Art is far too seriously focused and attached to this time when Our wee world is such a serious place with shadows challenging the sun. This ‘play’ wants to be seasonally energetic and call on us to think of Moments when engagement and play is possible even across species. “Throw the Ball” seeks to be totally accessible to the widest audience possible, and in this case the audience includes both the owner and the dog.”
