FIDDLING WITH AN OLD TUNA CAN

The latest offering from the Daddy Papersurfer Sculpture Studio.

Tuna can

I love it when the plinth takes longer to make than the deep and meaningful piece of art that is displayed upon it.

This work makes wide sweeping comments about convenience food, modern packaging, the meaning and importance of intimate and loving relationships, the place of re-cycling in Western cultures, the beauty of the found object and the necessity to concentrate really hard on examining tins before wielding the tin-opener.

Why the reference to intimate and loving relationships?

“Peabrain – you’re an idiot” was said as soon as I started to open this tin of tuna. (I’ve been waiting for quite some time for evidence to the contrary. I’d be amazed pleased delighted to be proved wrong. Lo,TG Ed {(However – I’m not holding my breath. Lo,TG Ed)})
