ART FROM THE DISCARDED OBJECT

Being a mixed media artist, I primarily depend on found or discarded objects to achieve the elements of color, shape and texture that are so important in my work.

By assembling the discarded objects into something new or different, there is a sense of salvation, of bringing these objects to a new life and to a new meaning.

Ultimately my work is about:

CONSTRUCTION (the object in its original state), DECONSTRUCTION (the discarded object now torn, broken, weathered - i.e. not in its original state or condition), and RECONSTRUCTION (as it now appears

in my art).

While my work is about change, I also try to bring the element of concealment and withholding to my pieces, leaving room for imagination.

I am a self taught artist. My work has appeared in a number of exhibitions and galleries.
