“I grew up in an automotive family, surrounded by old decaying cars and gas cans that eventually became like still-lifes. My dad owns a salvage yard on an old country street and that salvage yard quickly became one of my favorite places to create art. Each car filled with abandoned belongings, each busted windowshield and mangled hood had a story. It was often a tragic series of events that led to anything being on that lot that served as a final resting place to lost causes. I chose to explore the word “disposable” through objects that seemed to contain narratives that time forgot. Utilizing the deterioration that I found at this rural Louisiana salvage yard, I chose to explore themes of deterioration, destruction, and object identity.”
