ARTIST STATEMENT: re-cycled
I am a scavenger. I walk, look down, search, and find possibilities in what others have discarded. I find beauty in the imperfections of the objects. This body of work represents my struggle with accepting my own flaws. I compare the symbolic perfection of the circle against the decayed nature of the materials. The circle within the square, the layering of objects and material, and the use of creative destruction, represent the challenge to look past the surface and find the beauty within.
