Using Found Objects & Discarded Trash to Create Modern Cross / Crucifix Art
My found object cross art assemblage shown above, untitled (#022201) was the first piece to bring me back to my found object assemblage work recently. I create my cross / crucifix art pieces with old wood and rusted metal that we find on our hikes and our travels to abandoned properties, and invitations to property of friends, family members and acquaintances who know that I create art pieces from old junk, discarded items.
I recycled discarded trash into works of art with a focus on cross art at the moment. I have always had an affinity to old farmhouses and homes designed in a modern mountain style. I believe my assemblages fit so beautifully into this type of surrounding. Often times with my assemblages I create works that I want to fill the walls of my own home.
