- Grandpa Great's Wrenches: commissioned, mixed media artwork by Louise Philbrick featuring farm wrenches and found objects

"Grandpa Great's Wrenches" is a commissioned triptych honoring the life of a deceased potato farmer. The farmer's grandson, Kevin, gave me three of his grandfather's wrenches, an image of him in his shop and a two-hour, verbal history of the man himself. I was asked to create this triptych in such a way that it could be later divided up into three, stand-alone pieces which Kevin intends to gift to each of his three sons.
