ARTIST STATEMENT: I’ve always been a beachcomber, scanning the shoreline for washed up treasures. My new work evolved after revisiting Provincetown. Collecting natural materials reawakened a passion to work with found materials. When I returned to my urban life in Brooklyn, I began scanning my environment in a new way. Basements of aging hardware, second hand shops, cast offs left on stoops for repurposing, street debris supply me with the materials and inspiration to create these metal assemblages. Working in this way provides me with a kinship to outsider art.
