Artist's Description

Storytime on this one. When I was in New Zealand, I lived on a farm in Waimauku, about 50k out of Auckland. Down the back of the farm not too far away from the main house I was living in was a large rubbish tip that dated back from at least the 1920’s, so I had fun scavenging, and found all sorts of things – old bottles, old dollhouse furniture, coins, bones, and newspapers. Humans being the creatures they are, the rubbish tip was right on the edge of a river, and led up a steep bank, one of those places where if you tripped you would fall right into the drink. Right at the edge where the bank met the river, was an old wagon wheel just sitting in the mud at a slight angle. Even though that was nearly 20 years ago, it was one of those things that stayed in my mind ever since, and not sure why. Possibly just fascinated me. But the thing that was different about the wagon wheel to the one in this rendering is that the actual rim was missing – I tried to do this in Bryce but it looked a bit funny, so I left the rim on. I tried to drag it out of the mud, but it was in there good and tight from the years of mud sloshed in around it.
