ASSEMBLAGES
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Assemblage style sculpture incorporating various meaningful objects from the detritus of America's consumer and popular culture.
 
I really enjoy taking rusty old objects that have served their original purpose
and giving them new life by combining them together in a unique creative fashion. 
They seem to sing again for another reason and another season!
 
These lovely treasures patiently await their turn.  Okay, who is next!
Have you ever lain in the grass, looking above at the clouds and watching them morph into all sorts of critters ? Well that's the process I use when creating these assemblages. I have a room full of "possibilities" with a large operating table in the middle.  This is where they start taking on their new life.  For example, a notary seal turns into the beak of a bird.  Or an old wooden milk crate becomes the form that houses a visual biography of an early delta blues musician.  I never force them to fit together.  If they fit, then they are suppose to be together.  People ask me how I come up with these ideas?  Well, I don't plan them out.  They just evolve into their new selves with a little coaxing from me!  Where do I find these rusty gold treasures?  My wife and I travel alot going from show to show around the country.  When we need a break, we like to stop at antique shops or thrift stores.  We purchase the things that really speak to us!  As you can see,  I have plenty of possibilities waiting their turn.
