DeJunked: The Art of Erik Ritter

Osseo, Minnesota 0 Sales On Etsy since 2008

Announcement   Reclaimed Objects into ART.

Artist statement:
As a product of America's plastic, throwaway culture, it’s prophetic that I make art out of
the stuff people don’t want – junk they no longer need, but don’t quite throw away. My
alchemist pursuit is a metaphor to how we interact with the earth. Sometimes the
residue is called art, I call it DeJunked.

Somewhere inside every toothbrush is the memory of you brushing your teeth, the way
you brush your teeth, and the way you hold your toothbrush. No matter what I try to
communicate about something, I don’t think I can compete with that sponge-like quality
of objects. So I don’t try to; I just put stuff together and let it speak for itself.
