From Spare Parts to High Art

Amongst the ranches of South Dakota, artist John Lopez is welding unbelievable assemblages of scrap metal and discarded farm tools. His constructions are larger-than-life recreations of bears, bulls, horses and more, all imbued with the spirit of the Wild West. While his metal menageries may look like a chaotic fusion up close, stepping back reveals an animal come alive.
