RURAL BIG BOYS

 

2012-2013

 

Porn accounts for more than its fair share of Internet traffic, and Carson’s sexy pictures of farm equipment are not blind to that fact. Her crisply rendered, lusciously brushed and smartly composed pictures are also acutely attuned to humor, especially to how funny it is to try to make farming sexy.

Yet Carson does so in spades, turning monster-truck-scale vehicles into heroic emblems of strength, perseverance and integrity. Bread-winning is for sissies, these juicy acrylics scream; real men and women grow tons of the stuff and then ship it all over the globe, where it feeds people from all walks of life.
