George Tobias: By The Skin Of Our Teeth

a new work by outsider artist George Tobias.

With his current assemblage the artist has found 270 worker’s saws, both ancient and modern, each with its own impregnated patina of blood, sweat and sawdust, and painstakingly fused them together in pairs, rendering their original use inept. This re-appropriation challenges the spectator to re-assess their perceived view of these common hardware tools which now take on aspects of erotic pairing and rough spooning, and imagine them instead as sacred sculptural artefacts which once adorned the walls of a grand cathedral or masonic hall.
