I am choosing to work the Art Assemblage arena due to influences and friendships with older artists who were the founders of the West Coast art movements of the famous Ferus Gallery (1957-66) in Los Angeles. Being inspired by the materials, (i.e. found/discarded objects) a construct is formed with a new life for these discards. The piece begins by continually moving common objects around and abstracting them into what ultimately may be a unified body. No assemblage is started with a clear view of what the finished piece will look like. After much fussing (and work) objects begin to form the dynamic of a certain cohesion. Possibly the viewer sees familiar objects (perhaps now unrecognizable) that have been altered with a new take where these objects have transformed the bounds of their original use. I am glad to be apart of this International Society of Artists, feel like I have come home... Mendocino 2009
