Bad Dog by Richard Jackson

74-year-old artist Richard Jackson has made a 28-foot-tall sculpture of a black Labrador that “marks its territory” on the side of the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) in Newport Beach, California.

The sculpture of the giant bad dog, leaving its mark on the building is made of 52 digitally cut pieces of fiber glass and composite materials that were assembled on-site. Once the structure was intact, Jackson entered the sizable sculpture with a bucket of yellow paint to be splattered on the wall. Now, the mechanized sculpture squirts a stream of yellow paint on its own. It is one of Jackson’s many “Painting machines”.

Bad Dog will be on display at OCMA, along with Jackson’s retrospective “Richard Jackson: Ain’t Painting a Pain” through May 5, 2013.
