i’ve always been a collector, a salvager, a recycler. i keep bottlecaps. fortune cookie fortunes. dice. playing cards. all kinds of random bits and pieces of stuff i find. my friend nita enabled me even more by gifting me with tons of vintage board game pieces. and of course, there’s still all those records (and now, cds) from a lifetime as a dj and music critic.
at some point, i thought it’d be fun to start glueing it all together to make fun 3d collage-type pieces. i try to tell a story or have a theme, at least, with each piece, but sometimes the objects themselves just dictate how they will go together.
below are a few of the mixed media pieces i’ve made in the past.
