Recycled Art Pieces...A Body of Work from the Soul of the Dumpster
I have been doing recycled art for twenty years now. I incorporate found objects from the streets, junk sales and antique stores in the form of old photos, pages from old law books and encyclopedias, beads, gold leaf, recycled paint, auto parts and just about anything I can readily get my hands on. I use old drawers and boxes to do pieces reminiscent of Joseph Cornell, who is a big influence on my work.
