scavenged thoughts....is the way to sum up my collage/assemblage artworks, which are a blending of scavenged materials and borrowed thoughts.
what is then created from that is meant as homage to all the arts. objects paired with significant or memorable thoughts, lines of poetry, bits of a song lyric, notable literary phrases or simply a play on words.
any of these may be the inspiration for the next piece which may be imagined through the use of paper, wood, and/or a host of interesting embellishments.
elements coming together, presented in a new form. thereby,
something once expressed becomes relevant again in a new form.
to borrow a quote from the artist, asher durand, who so perfectly stated, "the artist....will have seen more than the mere matter of fact, but no more that is there and that another may see if it is pointed out to him."
i hope my works will point out something worth remembering for the viewer.
you may view the work on the gallery pages.
