Jim Nodge is a first and last generation farmer from the Craik area. His art has evolved from his inability to part with much of his busted farm machinery and a desire to spend time in the welding shop without doing any actual work.
With the welder, he has managed to combine old tools, farm parts, and various bits of junk metal together to build his creatures: big and small. For the last 18 years, he has exhibited and sold his work across Western Canada.
The Ultimate Goal:
clean the place up;
make some money;
and most of all,
to make people smile.
“I like doing this sort of work because it’s a lot more fun than having to do regular work. For instance, I can take a pair of pliers that I have to use for “work” but I spend my time looking at the pliers and I see the lovely shapes; the sculptured part; I see it open and close its mouth. So, I see art in that, rather than what is supposed to be done: which is hard work.”
