Picador Clothes Rack

John Smith

Laminated Blackwood, cast aluminium, gold plated bronze
2100mm (h) x 600mm (w) x 2100mm (d)

The Picador Coat Rack was one of a series of works developed from an Australia Council residency in Barcelona in 1992. The structure of the form is essentially a skeletal interpretation of a bull (from the Spanish bull fighting tradition) - a kind of sad lament to the fate of the bull.

Donated by the Artist, 2006
