Uncommon Objects


8x8 oil on stretched cotton canvas
$100 unframed (email me if interested)SOLD

The third installment of my Austin Landmarks.Uncommon Objects is a shop full of found objects that are displayed so creatively its almost like walking through a fun funky art gallery. The fiberglass rabbit was rescued from a dump in Dallas and the cowboy was made from a car muffler. This sculpture was produced around 1992 by Evan Voyles whose other creations are scattered around Austin. This is only one of the many landmark art that makes Austin quirky.
