It may be more accurate to title the post Fine Art as Lawn Chairs.  These sculptures from artist Patrick McDonough only resemble the outdoor furniture.  They may contain familiar hardware and components such as a hinge or stray armrest.  However, they are carefully constructed sculptures.  As much as they resemble outdoor furniture, McDonough also seems to be referencing abstract painting.  Chair frames mirror canvas frames, and the grid patterns that usually support our weight resemble Hard-edge Painting.  The one thing both lawn chairs and fine art seem to hint at is the idea of leisure and a leisure class.
