Your Art Here presents 2 Frogs, an Elephant, and the Magical Horseshoe by artist Adam Courier for the Massachusetts Ave. Billboard Project. The billboard will be mounted thru July 2007.
2 Frogs, an Elephant, and the Magical Horseshoe could be an unwritten fairy tale. There are stories to be told by looking in the slightly sad eyes of those frogs. Why is the elephant leaving, slowly lumbering on? What mystery is held in the horseshoe, and what are the frogs hoping for with its magic?
I loved the emotion in the frogs’ little porcelain figures, I loved the coincidences and events that had to take place to bring these random knick knacks to this ledge, their stage, above the kitchen sink. The picture glows with the soft warm light and the colors of home. Its a charm you only find in the oldest of things.
Adam Courier was born in Honolulu, HI in 1980. He grew up in Indianapolis and went to school in Bloomington where he graduated from in 2002. He currently works in film production in Hawaii, but is moving to Los Angeles in the fall of 2007.
