All American

Linda Erzinger's avatar Linda Erzinger

This assemblage work is made of 95% reclaimed materials. The shadowbox face is covered with a Fresnel lens from a rear projection tv which magnifies and distorts the inner contents. On this front screen, clear acrylic is painted, creating a complimentary etched looking image that floats and accentuates the assemblage inside. It contains golf clubs, fabric, plastic, traffic cone bits, match book covers, assorted small toys, astro turf and instructions for a doorbell and smoke detector. The image shifts and changes from different angles. This art calls to the viewer for exploration. All American is about the blending of people that make up this country. Gays, rebels, conservatives, whomever, we are what makes this nation. Lets shift and change perspectives on each other together.
