Construction Material Art
After art school I am starting my journey of becoming a carpenter after a 7 year art journey. I am pushing myself on a new journey to express the trades with my art because I believe the trades go under-appreciated yet those "Rough and Tough guys" literally built the house or apartment you are sitting in right now.
My artwork is only made with construction materials or scraps on the job site that would have been thrown out to help push me to learn within Art, Carpentry, & Self being. However carpentry is just a scratch from the surface within the trades and not even a 16th of a inch of the usable construction materials that are out there from the plumbing, the the sparkies tools & HVAC stuff.
This decision to work strictly in this new medium will force me to be way more creative from wall sculptures to Installations & free standing sculptures while simultaneously exposing the underbelly off our modern world with how the buildings are built and the crazy amount of work that goes into it that you might have not fully recognized or live it every day.
While doing framing work and looking at the partly exposed structures make my art mind go wild with ideas as I'm stepping further within this world where builds & creativity is absolutely endless.
