Shadow of the trojan horse

Shadow of the Trojan Horse

Piece description from the artist

This is a found object assemblage piece depicting the Trojan Horse. Using found objects such as sticks, cabinet knobs, toys, used paint brushes and parts of a French press, an image of the fabled trojan horse presents itself. The tale itself has faded with time, reformed by the glue of reconstructed stories. told generation after generation by bits and pieces of what was original and what was added, resulting in a fossilized shell of beauty.

About Skip Myers

Austin, TX

The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
