Wisdom and Technology

Anthony Jackson's avatar Anthony Jackson

My entry for this years ArtPrize will include images meaningful to me personally and hopefully visitors to ArtPrize will draw their own conclusions from viewing my work as to it's worth as an entry, I have had this image banging around in my head for a few years now, it will incorporate an original horse drawn plow [technology] grown over with roots similar to Osage a human scull will also be detained by the roots, and perched on the beam of the plow will be a Great Horned Owl [wisdom] . All the elements except the plow will be formed from metal using various techniques , forging , welding and a heavy form of repousse using different hammers and tools some fabricated for this work . I am amazed at how far technology has advanced since I was a child , I am using it at this moment to enter ArtPrize 2012 , I am also amazed at how fast nature takes back and over grows things used unwisely or abandoned I am trying to convey these feeling's with my work.
