A bonnet made from lawnmower blades is part of Peter McFarlane’s heralded series of First Nation masks and head dresses created from used objects (chainsaws, shovels, rototiller blades and more). Based in British Columbia, where he is represented by Pegasus Gallery, McFarlane is a sculptor, painter and installation artist.
Home (above) is a silverware nest made from old silver spoons, knives and forks, which McFarlane calls “a nostalgic view of youth” that also reflects his own “empty nest” with children left from home.
