Pugsley 12.15.16


“Pugsley,” 26X18″ – scrap art assemblage – $400

I had found the boxing glove in the middle of Llewellyn Ave. just north of the railroad tracks in Norfolk many years ago.

It’s filled with horsehair and has the “Everlast” label on the backside.

As I pondered it recently, I imagined a punch-drunk turtle, always leading with his chin… his manager, Mr. Toad, is a bit wary of his “rope-a-dope” strategy…

Made of various found objects, including a tin pipe topper, flattened metal can, license plate letters and other stuff.

Wired and ready to hang.
