Artist Statement:
I searched through my junk pile for scrap metal and broken truck parts. I walked into the woods, gathered stones and cut down trees. I pulled out my toy box from the attic. I brought all these odds and ends into my shop and with a hammer in one hand and a brush in the other I started to bang things together and sling wet paint. I pulled out all the stops. I lost track of time and forgot who I was. I dug up all the old memories; wiped the tears from my eyes and started telling stories. This exhibition is the result. It’s a no holds barred, bare-knuckled, greased pig hootenanny jamboree death match. Close your eyes and open your heart. The world is hard on the little things. Take it all in and don’t be afraid to let it all hang out. Just remember; enter at your own risk cause in this show “WE DON’T DIAL 911".
-Glenn Downing
