Fuchsia Purple Bullet Hole Gas Can Lamp by Charles Linder



This antique metal gas can was shot with bullets, powder coated and wired as a lamp to become a bold work of art made Charles Linder. He has been making artwork out of bullet-riddled objects for over 30 years. The light coming through the holes has a particular ambiance and interesting cast onto the surface it sits on. It is wired with one medium socket and inline switch. 13.25" height x 12" diameter. We have other colors and styles available. Growing up in Alabama, he would find the abandoned targets and eventually repurpose them as lanterns. Today, he will occasionally source antique metal cans on eBay and then “execute” the works himself down at the ranch. After the shooting is finished, the cans are then sand blasted and powder coated in a variety of colors. Finally, the pieces are electrified and illuminated so that, in a dark room, light pours out of the bullet holes and onto the walls creating a little universe of stars. 2021.
