“Prairie Cyclops” 1992

Mixed media, 18” x 10” x 8”. Artist’s collection.
In Iowa I would occasionally visit someone’s farm buildings. They always gave me the creeps.  Something sinister about all the things hidden in a hay loft.  Ropes, chains, hooks, pitch forks lurking in the darkness.  I always imagined a lynching ….. or being trampled by a sow or a bull. This piece had a tape recorder that transmitted a lecture up through the hole in the barn floor.
