- ItemDrawing Tools(2006-05-15) Donarski, Vincent; Ruppert, John; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)I am from a small town in Northern Minnesota where my father runs an aggregate production business. I grew up surrounded by the heavy equipment used to move and crush gravel. My earliest memories are of seeing this machinery and being fascinated by its size, power, and sound. My work borrows the imagery and scale of these machines to make abstract forms and tools. Through making these objects I arrive at some kind of nonsensical use for them. I will create a scene, or job site where the object is used to mark another material. The tool will be used until some kind of limit is met. I will either operate the tool until I physically can't do it, or the tool becomes stuck or broken.
