Douglas Maccardini "Tandem Bots" at the Joyful Jewel 5-8-14

"Tandem Bot"
Douglas Maccardini
Mixed Media Sculpture ~ 12" x 11"
I think our newest artist at the Joyful Jewel, Douglas Maccardini, is an "art comedian" because his work always brings a chuckle.  There is a good dose of nostalgia working too as you recognize recycled parts.  This bicycle built for two has one figure whose body is made from an old metal pill canister.  I also recognize a tea ball, springs, wrenches, washers, and I think it's a door knob.  The darker figure has a metal cannister body that imprinted with "Rose".  Who knows what that came from?  Sharon Blessum put this piece in the window inside opposite the bicycle sculpture that sits outside!
