Buster Simpson Salmon-Ta-Boot Hanging Windvane Folk Art Sculpture 1986
Item Details
Description
A captivating and whimsical windvane sculpture of plastic/metal painted fish, fishing string, and a rubber boot, titled Salmon-Ta-Boot by Seattle based artist Buster Simpson. This 1986 school is part of a run edition of 150. Per the artist, the sculpture is designed to swim in the wind and the "human lures" are created to take advantage of sunlight and artificial light, so mount in areas where both are available. Also, designed to stay out all year; weathering will occur as with any folk art. Sculpture includes instructions from artist how to install (photographed for reference). Originally purchased from The Hand and The Spirit Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona and was part of a private collection. Dimensions: 77h x 32w x 32d. In very good vintage condition with some wear expected with age.
Buster Simpson (1942- ) has worked on major infrastructure and planning projects, sight specific sculptures, museum installations, and community interventions. Simpson's work employs site specific opportunities, engages social actions, and sustainable opportunities, often considered "poetic utility". Humor and rich metaphors distinguish his work, with deceptively simple sculptures offering social and ecological engagements and solutions to real problems. In 2013 the Frye Art Museum mounted a major retrospective of my work. Simpson has exhibited at The New Museum, MoMA PS1, Seattle Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, The Hirshhorn Museum, Capp Street Project, Museum of Glass. Simpson's work is included in numerous public commissions throughout North America.
