This series is the latest that I’m developing and enjoying the chance to break free from 2-D. Here I’ve taken the same Doo-Dad’s that I’ve been using for my Purification Amulets. Under the same vein tapping into their inert energy to bring forth a new element of power within them. The discarded objects have often known a life of purpose and gathered satisfaction in fulfilling someone’s needs. Now I’ve been exploring their potential to become an object of healing in new ways. I’m enchanting each item with a new purpose and place to exist in the world. On one of the higher pedestals of being glorified into a work of art. These scraps can relate to many of us who feel lost and eager to be found or repurposed and perfectly positioned in our most empowering atmosphere. The same can be done with us if we were to search the possibilities for an expression of creativity that we can be passionate about. I’m very passionate about reducing waste and creating something aesthetic from the absurd or neglected. Which gets back to the roots of my art making where I haphazardly created assemblages and ready-mades from junk to be given as presents to people for mostly real accomplishments or celebrations. These Fetishized Scraps are a way for me to reach back to my inner dadaist and glorify the residue from our throw away culture.
