Childish Things, 12.13.11

Found object assemblage | 19.5X19.5″ | $150

Here’s a thought: if a grown man has a rich fantasy life, he should probably keep it to himself. Under his hat, as it were. Nobody really wants to know about his love of playthings – I’m sorry, “action figures” – because once you reach a certain age, you should start acting it.

The found wooden drawer and hand made trowel matched up pretty well, and I initially tried to make a Buster Keaton portrait, but realized that all of the small found toys in my collection could be put to good use here, along with the iron boot jack.

Wired and ready to hang or stand up.
