I purchased this for my husbands birthday, and it looks amazing in his office! I love that Kevin used a wood piece with "Atlanta GA" printed in it, since that's where we live!
Re-cycled, Re-imagined, Re-fashioned, Redeemed
I reuse other people's discarded items to create my art by acquiring my materials from sources that are throwing out or burning the materials. I salvage the items and attempt to recycle them, and make them into something beautiful once again. I have found that in life some of the most striking beauty is found in the discarded and broken things. I strive to mirror that same hope in the art that I create. While the end result should be a thing of aesthetic pleasure, the ultimate goal is always redemption-- something new from the old, something lovely from the rubbish, and in each of us, and in all things, another chance to be made beautiful.
