Sculptural Dresses Crafted from Vintage Oil Cans by Donna McCullough

Artist Donna McCullough uses vintage gas and oil cans to create beautiful sculptural dresses embellished with flourishes of wire mesh, screening, cut-outs and bits of found objects. In this series of works titled "The Drill Team" McCullough winkingly exploits cheerleader stereotypes creating pieces that are a whimsical take on our oil-driven culture and our passion to be members of a winning team. Speaking about  her work she says, "I like the duplicitous nature of steel which can be manipulated to appear feminine and soft while actually maintaining its strength and rigidity—an expression in contrasts and complements."
