Can Crush Series
The body of this work brings together people with what they have abandoned, to allow them to see new potential for discarded objects. The crushed paint cans in the Can Crush (2012) series have been donated by Habitat for Humanity’s paint recycling program and diverted from Lexington’s landfill. I recognize the natural world around me, even what is considered “waste,” and see its potential and beauty, and create a space for it to be highlighted. These found objects, in combination with color and texture on a canvas, provide the space for them to be seen, in all their intricacy.
