Texas Lawn Dart

Mitchell Tillison

Albuquerque, United States

Artist's Description

A detail from the participative artwork known as “Carhenge” and/or “Cadillac Ranch”. Consisting of ten Cadillacs (1949 – 1963) half-buried nose first in a line parallel to old Route 66 in the Texas Panhandle, this unique sight has been a roadside draw since 1974. At highway speeds the attraction is a one note symphony of West Texas quirkiness. Upon closer inspection the scene resolves into a riotous panoply of spray-painted grafitti bearing the names, greetings, artwork, and cryptic messages of previous passersby, who in the cumulative, have created a beautiful, primary-colored homage to the American psyche.

This is a hand-held, 3-shot HDR, Pentax K20D, variable shutter @ F13, ISO 100, 28mm.
