Betty Boop

Found metal assemblage / 18X26″ / 8.15.11 / $500

Every now and then, I see something immediately in a found object and try to make my initial vision come true.

In this case, it was this red, Boopish auto part I saw at the scrap yard. I wanted to place her in a light housekeeping situation.

Her gams and the vacuum bag are flatware fragments – her cute figure is a smashed aerosol can I’ve had for years.

Her earring, chair and other parts are from Roy’s relic hunting donations.

Wired and ready to hang.
