The free standing sculptures are works in progress. Well, so is a lot of my work – but these even more so. Each one has taken ages to make – and each one will be quite different. Currently, there is a series of small sculptures that were designed to be “held in two hands”.
I love recycling – and found objects. I never really understood the term “found objects” when I first started exploring art years ago. I thought it would have to be found… by me… not purchased. I am certain there is a debate about what should be/ is / could be considered a “found object”. 🙂
My own personal work does involve many object that I have found myself. BEACHED – was once I think, a child’s toy ship – made of lovely metal. Quite the discarded treasure. The wood comes from the Leslie Spit in Toronto – a rough beach where all the detrius of the summer piles on the shore. The glass comes from various windshields – found and picked off the Toronto streets. It is quite a heavy piece because of the layers of glass. Finally, the “shore” is rusted metal – and little bits of pocket watch pieces as well.
I’ve been quite the avid photographer and had a few gallery shows. Lately though I’ve had less and less time to take photos. I began with film – and then moved to digital, but never had the money to buy really great cameras. Mostly I’ve used good quality Cannon cameras – now all old and out-dated like my beloved and much-abused Canon G6.
Technically some of this might not qualify as Macro photography. Maybe just “close up” photography. I am no pro – but I do it for love.
There are quite a few abstract photos – some fun, some funny, some strange… well quite a few strange. 🙂
