Stand Up (2017)
acrylic on wood w/metals and beads
24 x 8.5 x 4 in.
“My work in ‘Dreaming Bigger in Strange Times’ are all constructions. The work utilizes found materials including wood, metals, beads, and other objects that I acquire and eventually incorporate in my work. Usually optimistic, these works have a literal and metaphorical edge. As you view them and read the titles, I hope you will make some conclusions of your own.”
