Art is dangerous. It is one of the attractions: when it ceases to be dangerous you don’t want it.
~ Duke Ellington
Practicing the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-sabi, these objects are created with reclaimed copper wire, found objects and the twists and turns of my own imagination.
I blurt to get the crazy out of my head and onto a page because I find it invaluable. Sometimes – most times actually – it makes me realize that the importance I put on something is really not worth the angst. Sometimes it makes me feel like I am not alone in this new town, so very far away from friends and family and familiar places. And most time, it really does reiterate that life is funny if you look for those moments. And I have had a lot of those moments in my life, past and present...
I’d also like to the think that putting my weird out there on display helps others see that their weird isn’t as bad, or is just as bad, or really could be much worse...
