Over the Moon

112" x 74" Repurposed vinyl street banner I salvage vinyl street banners before they are discarded in landfills and use the words, colors and imagery, as a powerful starting point in my process. Reclaimed billboard vinyl are message boards of societies, conjuring both place and time through a physical presence. I meticulously hand cut the material into strips which fractures the initial image disrupting the central intent of the printed information. As I weave the assorted strips together, images disintegrate into complex abstract shapes and complex color schemes. The pixelated forms further disintegrate the original image to transform the final piece to a new narrative.

STATEMENT

My work speaks as both painting and sculpture. Trash and consumerism, a by- product of man’s mark on the environment, is destroying our environment. I salvage vinyl street banners before they are discarded in landfills and use the words, colors and imagery, as a powerful starting point in my process. I cut, slash, crunch, and weave the vinyl into three-dimensional objects. Through the action of deconstructing, I attempt to restructure and form material to reclaim and restore a healing presence through the work.
