The Object as Art

Tractor Photo

Our collectible business has been a great resource for found objects that we see as art. Some of these objects we can bring home for inspiration, while others we can only bring home in the form of a photo. Many of the objects we acquire are used in arrangements to tickle our minds. But when it comes to an old tractor sitting in a field, the photo of the tractor just begs me to create the minds eye view I see inside my head. Then the play begins. The “McCormick Deering West” photo is the result of one of these play sessions. This particular tractor spoke with the streamlined optimism of the 1939 World’s Fair, but now speaks of a rusted machine age bone yard. As I age I see that bone yard more in focus. The art play that I took for granted is now being grabbed with a less cavalier attitude. The hunt is on. The object is the tool. The tool pries open the mind. The mind sees. The fun is alive. Please enjoy the photo.
