    Exhibition: Sculptors Working, 1988

    Mason’s Trowel, 1988

    Automotive enamel

    10'6" x 65'

    Mason's Trowel was painted to be seen on two levels: at close range the image is obscured, one sees only the garish automotive enamel paint splashed over raw corrugated steel. Many passersby miss the subject and react solely to the surface. Secondly, from inside the Park, the image comes into focus as a growing steel-nosed tool watch-dogging the art park. A symbol of development serving as a reminder of the unsecured status of the Park itself. Bob Prezioso, Harold H. Anthony Inc was generous to provide both the working surface and all the materials used.
