Mixed Media - Recycled Found Object Sculpture
Six of my pieces were just published in the Contemporary Sculptor table book.
My Recycled Found Object Sculptures:
Ken Marquis from Landfill Art approached me to be a part of the Landfill Art project. Ken was going to have 1041 artists take scrapped hubcaps clean them up and we the artists were going to turn what was 'junk' into masterpieces. It will be a traveling exhibit and a table book when finished. After I sent my hubcap to Ken I was hooked. The idea of recycling found objects as my canvas is a riot! Flea markets have provided me with the 'treasures' I use in my pieces. Most recycled found object artists use just that... found objects. Many paint and have their own wonderful style. I incorporate my polymer clay on most of my pieces which makes my pieces different.
