"At the core of Colsons work is a witty sense of humor and an awareness that artistic inspiration can be found in many unlikely places. For example, a large sculpture that the artist refers to as a 'hot dog boat,' was in fact based on a vision of the Virgin Mary that he had while driving. The sculpture resembles that of a halo outline, yet does not reflect the artists thoughts on religion, but rather it implies, according to Colson, 'a yearning quality that is earthbound and in reality will not fly.' Constructions of yearning, anticipation and the foreshadowing of impending demise dominate Colsons artworks making the viewer aware that although the pieces appear to be blank slates, they do in fact carry many potential messages."
Hmmm, "hot dog boat" - interesting turn of de lingua, not my words.
