Walton Creel: “Deweaponizing the gun.”

(Geschoten door wit geschilderde alumium plaat met een .22 geweer)

“When I decided I wanted to make art using a gun, I was not sure what direction I would have to take. I knew I did not want to use it simply as an accent to work I was doing, but as the focus. My main goal was to take the destructive power away from the gun. To manipulate the gun into a tool of creation and use it in a way that removed it from its original purpose, to deweaponize it.”
