AESTHETIC

The oil drum has been employed as an aesthetic vessel by John Chamberlain, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Forrest Myers, and other renowned artists who have seen the possibilities of the metal container as a symbol or as a point of artistic departure.  It is a 3-dimensional “canvas” that conjures up a variety of meaningful images.

The oil drum when used as a means of expression will remind the world that art has a place, not just in museums, but wherever it may be seen and pondered, and not just as art, but as philosophy whose power will rise from the making of art from a common symbol that is large enough to embrace it.
