3 Hooks at Hall’s Harbour – a new work in my Tech Totem assemblage series

Over the past four decades, I’ve amassed a substantial collection of outmoded technological devices that I treasure for their aesthetic design qualities.

By transforming these mundane objects into artistic 3-D assemblages, I’ve elevated them to totemic status while commenting on the transient nature of technological tools.

To create this assemblage, I mounted a trio of rusty hooks on an archival color print of a wall on the wharf at Hall’s Harbour, Nova Scotia. The erratic, rough lines and weathered wood of the wharf made for a seamless background for the stylized shape of these vintage hooks.

You can see more of these totems here.

My Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after surviving five cardiac arrests in 2011.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
