I call these assemblages “bursts” because they represent a burst of energy and they appear to burst from the surface they sit on. Made from bits and pieces of the old things I gather, these are actually Cubist works, inspired by the paintings and sculptures done around 1910-1920 by the likes of Picasso and Braque. Some are sharply angled, many have segments of deconstructed things. They often have some formal as well as some “found” elements, and beyond that they can be big or small, flat or dimensional. Some come together in minutes, some take days of work to get the right objects and angles. Though “low tech”, the items and the arrangements make very rich ensembles.
