Always a Winner
22” x 13” x 8”
Collaged vintage and digital betting (tote) tickets and racing ephemera, celluclay, apoxie sculpt clay, steel legs, copper covered jewelry wires. UV clear coated.
Always a Winner is a big winner despite his coat of colorful losing vintage betting tickets and ephemera from tracks all over the United States. What looks like a patchwork quilt in an explosion of color is actually layers of vintage collaged tote tickets. I have scanned them and reproduced them with archival inks and also added a layer of UV Clear to seal them. Tracks do not produce these kinds of colorful betting tickets anymore. The legs are steel and very sturdy. The body is solid and made of carved polypropylene covered with a hard sculptural apoxie clay and celluclay. The mane and tail are copper coated jewelers wires. Winner is a fun and colorful horse to add to your home. Don’t leave him at the starting gate.
