"Beat and Bang" (available)
After the flood of 2010, here in Nashville, I was lucky enough to work with Sheri Oneal on the ReTune Nashville charity. The money raised from this would go to local artist that lost equipment in the flood, and didn't have any insurance. Several visual artist volunteered to create for this project. All the art was from flood damaged instruments. This was a dream for me. I love the shapes and colors of instruments. I created five pieces for the live and online auctions to help raise money for the benefit. Now I'm working on new pieces for myself. "Beat and Bang" is one of my first pieces, and I hope to work on many more in the near future. I'll be posting more projects as I work on them. Next, I'll be working on a flood damaged Baby Grand Piano from Ben Folds.
Sculpture created from flood damaged instruments (seven to be exact). I really had fun experimenting with the different shapes, colors, and textures of the instruments. There are so many beautiful parts hidden inside the instruments as well as the ones we see on the outside.
