I am an artist who uses fabricated components in a variety of media and rescued power objects to make art for the purpose of provoking discussions and reflection on a wide variety of social topics.  The topic of this series is re-cycle, re-purpose and “pay attention to what you discard in our water!” The different objects were collected  on the beaches of Lake Superior- including the condom. There is something viscerally satisfying about engineering the discarded objects I find in/on our waterways into a cohesive object which tells a story.  Do my Maine seacoast roots inform my passion?   You decide.

4″ X 4″ X 16″ Rescued Objects, Bronze Patina  2010

Living in Minnesota, I am 1500 miles from the nearest ocean. We Mainers call ourselves the “Salt People.” I found my own sea here on Lake Superior.  This work is honored with a bronze patina to age the wood and shells. It could have been found in Atlantis.  Perhaps it was.
