Assemblage Art: Meet Wilson

Assemblage art is defined as an artistic form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. It is similar to collage, a two-dimensional medium. It is part of the visual arts, and it typically uses found objects, but is not limited to these materials. (source: Wikipedia) Andy has made several pieces of assemblage face art over the years. Meet Wilson, his most recent piece of assemblage art in the shape of a face.

Let's take a closer look at the many details that go into Wilson...

  • First, his name! The structure of his face is made with a Wilson tennis racquet, which belonged to Andy when he was a child.
  • One of his eyes is made with a cigar box, a door knob, and parts of a propane tank.
  • His other eye is made with a functional light bulb. Have you ever seen a more fascinating wall sconce?!
  • His mouth also features a functional light bulb.
  • Speaking of his mouth, it reminds me a bit of the Cheshire Cat. Do you agree?
  • Wilson's nose includes the leg of a chair that used to be in our daughter's room, before it broke.
  • Some other objects included on this piece are pipe organ parts, piano parts, and fence parts.

Below are a few closeup photos so you can see some of these details...
