Four Quarters

2014

vintage metal Ford hubcap, smalti, ballchain, mirror

Ken Marquis of Landfillart.org put out a call to “one-thousand-forty-one (1,041) artists to claim a piece of rusted metal garbage and create fine art.” The “rusted metal garbage” consisted of metal hubcaps from autos of the 1930’s through the 1970’s.  Artists apply, and Ken sends a hubcap!  “Four Quarters” is my contribution, representing the four quarters, or directions of the earth and their corresponding colors.
