Boxes

“Boxes” was an installation I executed at Andenken Gallery for the “Product” curated by Adam Sikorski.  Trying to cut costs of an installation I sought out the use of found objects and post consumer recycled material.  Finding the most readily available material in bulk to be cardboard so I used the shape and colors to make this installation in part of the gallery.  When it was time to take down the cardboard for after the show it seemed only natural to recycle the cardboard into something usable once again, so I set out gluing hundreds of pieces of cardboard together to make the chair pictured above.

chemistry is fun

This mural was done in the office of Dr. Steven Boone, Chemistry Professor at The University of Central Missouri.  The girl on the opposing wall is Steve’s daughter and she is blowing bubbles that transform into a molecule structure which is that of the hallucinogenic substance LSD.  What appears as Circles at the entry of the room is actually an optical illusion to make the room look less long and narrow. Dr. Boone later told me I was missing a double bond(could’ve been a bad batch)and I made a long trip from Colorado to Missouri to fix it.

Creations of the creator

This was an installation done in the UCM gallery for the 2008 senior show. I got the tree stump from a woodpile out on my my buddy Joe’s farm; although the limb had been laying detached for months, it sprouted leaves and new life before the opening.

Dumpster Art

When I was asked by friend and wonderful comedian Abbey Londer to create and installation for her warehouse comedy show, I found materials to create where any thrifty starving artist would. I scoured the streets of LA for inspiration as well as found materials in every way possible. I stretched canvas from old bed sheets and used discarded wood as a substrate, I used mistinted paint and anything that could be used. In the end this show was a success! I was able to keep the prices low and the all the pieces from the show sold. There is nothing more depressing than unsold pieces taking up space around my studio. and the icing on the cake was laughter was had by all.
