Pass The Hat, 2010

Cowboy clothes, lasso, classified advertisement for roping horse print, white pencil., Dimensions Variable


In "Pass the Hat" the upturned cowboy hat invites offerings to raise money to purchase a local roping horse. All of the found objects are present except for the horse, which is imagined through the image of the printed advertisement. Here the horse signifies a dream, to be a cowboy, whereas the clothes symbolize an image over a reality.
