DadisthenewMom Reviews: Sock Monkey In Discarded Boxed Wine Carton*
The “Stuffed Animals in Booze Containers” collection has surprised everyone with its 2011 model titled: “Sock Monkey In Discarded Boxed Wine Carton.” No true collector nor budding enthusiast could pass up this fine specimen with a clear conscience. In all my years of finding strange items shoved under my couch, I never expected to see the art form so sublimely brought to perfection as it has been with Sock Monkey In Discarded Boxed Wine Carton.
With the bold strokes we have seen from the likes of Marcel Duchamp, Sock Monkey In Discarded Boxed Wine Carton is a passionate piece of work that blurs the line between kitschy found-object art and the harsh, uncomfortable world that creates it. Blended from two solitary objects with rigid German efficiency and statuesquely poised to evoke a whole host of deep emotions, Sock Monkey In Discarded Boxed Wine Carton seems to come alive with its stillness. You feel that gritty weight of homelessness when looking upon it while at the same time your soul is uplifted by the meditative calm of camping under the stars. So powerful and numerous is the swirling vortex of thought and emotion that one is cast into upon seeing this physical incarnation of a sad beautiful false truth that I can only write one concrete fact about it: I wept.
