What do you get when you combine rustic imagery with neon? Well, Daniel Bruce ends up with an exhibition called Bumpkin Dandy. The "simple American lifestyle" is represented by icons and items such as a dream catcher, a butter churn- gas can pairing and an installation composed of a spade, an Adirondack chair, a wheelbarrow, a campfire, crossed rifles and a deer head. Nature becomes a carnivalesque roadside attraction ... when pigs fly.
Artist: Daniel A. Bruce
Bumpkin Dandy opens March 1 and runs through April 14, 2012 at Dean Project in new York.
