This work is from a self-defined series called Trophies. These pieces hang flush against the wall and range in scale from approximately a foot to three feet in their longest dimension. Wooden materials from discarded chair backs and legs are attached to mounts built from found floorboards to suggest natural, animal, or corporal forms. Assembled with these wooden elements are petal and frond shapes cut from the cans of popular brands of beer. Leather and other textile materials may appear in these works. 

My Trophy series is inspired by the culture of back roads, hunting sports, and beer drinking; environments I associate with machismo. These assemblages incorporate debris from my neighborhood that either completes a piece, or dictates a new work.  My use of these scavenged objects reflect my interests in the transformation of material, setting, and social behaviors.
