Call to Action
I use reclaimed materials that I find along my urban travels to create installations and sculptures that speak to social injustices and environmental problems as a means to explore overlooked issues and encourage conversation and social change. These materials would otherwise have been left to wither and age in anonymity. I enjoy seeing each piece inevitably go through multiple incarnations before it reaches its final state. Just to be able to be a part of the process of art coming alive in my hands; the process of creation and listening to each unique piece and allowing it to lead me in its metamorphosis is what my work is about. The transformation of the discarded object into an artwork, allows us to add value to discarded objects. I want to create an environmental awareness and to encourage you to act by moving you emotionally and leading you to less wasteful behaviors.
