assemblage |əˈsemblij|

Assemblage is an artistic form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. It is similar to collage, a two-dimensional medium. It is part of the visual arts, and it typically uses found objects, but is not limited to these materials.

My assemblages explore the possibilities of combining worlds, saving lives and changing intentions. Upcycling the old and giving new life.

The curving shape and sensual beauty of a brass horn still exists even after it falls from the stage. The well-worn guitar retains its grace long after the earthly life of the instrument. The instrument is resurrected with an infusion of love of an artist and the logic of nuts and bolts and gears and circuit boards.

Guns receive a transformation with a dressing of technology—both old and new. In essence, turning swords into plowshares—changing destruction into beauty.

There is no end of life for the broken and bruised. The resulting assemblages tell stories and represent unique new personalities, well-equipped to embrace a new future.

I started with the computer components but soon discovered that everyone was drawn to my Steampunk musical instruments and the way cool gun collection.

Steampunk Sewing

Fluted Colors ®

If you know me you know my distain for cords of any kind showing under desks, bookcases or anywhere. I go to great lengths to hide them, people have asked me to come to their office to hide their mass of computer cords. On the home shows they find a beautiful home overlooking the bay and say what a wonderful view it is... and there is the power pole massed with cables right in the way. While we were in Mexico I noticed there was a jumbled power pole on every block. I remembered the paintings of New York streets highlighting the hundreds of Yellow Cabs crowding the street scenes. So I had the idea to photograph the power poles with all the jumbled wires going in all directions and create art out of the one thing that annoys me the most... well that and squirrels. 

In Photoshop I created layered images, rendering the background buildings in a paint technique and faded the image back highlighting the poles and wires. Local vehicles were added as well as people. Just a fun project that took a very long time to produce.

Individual prints are available and can be grouped in 2's, 3's or all 4. Frames and matts are included for that Mexico color scheme.
