I just added a new little piece to my portfolio titled “Hang on, it gets better“:

HangOn_web2

“The discovery of an image of boys climbing the rope in gym class brought back some early trauma for me.  This piece takes a look at the sort of world in which such an activity could be considered relevant in preparation for adult life.”

Materials:

Equipment case, radio tuning dial cover, doorbell button, magazine clippings, voltage meters, LEDs.

HonigStudio01Last week I had the pleasure of visiting artist Al Honig in his San Francisco studio.  He’s definitely a sculptor after my own heart, a lifelong hoarder of wonderful things.  He is on the verge of some structural changes to his studio, and a shift in his creative process that led him to invite me to help myself to his awesome supply of treasures!  It was a huge treat to peruse such a carefully curated trove of found objects.  Below is a collection of images from the visit, and the resulting pile of stuff that made it back to my studio.  Countless creative possibilities here.

Thanks for your tremendous generosity Al!

Here are a few examples of Al’s work from his website:
