Trailer: Bigfoot 17 ft Gaucho

We found the story of a trailer made from vines and plants in the Arts & Entertainment section of the September 28th edition of The Oregonian newspaper (Portland). Its opening will be celebrated today in Tryon State Park.

Here's a description we found online.
Ghost Trailer - A life-size travel trailer sculpture that is host to native plants, branches, vines and moss. The organic exterior will change with the seasons. This installation represents the idea of nature and culture co-mingling.

J.D. Perkin’s artwork includes life-size figurative ceramic sculpture, paintings and performance art. Over the past twenty years, his work has been part of numerous Northwest solo and group exhibitions including The Laura Russo Gallery and the Sitka Art Invitational. Perkin received a Bachelor of Science from Portland State University in 1984, with a focus on anthropology.

Anne Thompson is both an artist and professional upholsterer. She has been combining a variety of media to create installations, assemblages and furniture for over twenty years. Second Skin, her most recent collaborative installation with J.D. Perkin, was shown at the Portland Art Center in early ’07. This major life-size exhibit was the impetus for Tryon Creek’s Ghost Trailer. Thompson has a Bachelor of Fine Art from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale .
