I use found and cast off items for the majority of materials in my sculptures.
finding beauty and interest in what is considered detritus.
i try to keep in mind the fact that many hands touched whatever i am disassembling from the people that made it to the end users. i need to make sure the work i make using the materials is done well.
some of the work , such as the drowning piece or the cheap shirts piece are meant to point out egregious flaws in our society’s decisions on who are considered important.
other works are for the fun of it and the puzzle of making a new whole out of many disparate parts.
