Choices, mixed media assemblage

Assembling common ready-made objects and assigning them opposing worldviews. The round garden shovel placed upon a piece of naughty pine wood evokes devotion to the earth. The pitchfork with the chard wood is symbolic of disaster. The Gothic shape with that 24 carat gold Leaf backing talks about refinement.  Like these tools we make choices in what we work for and how we live.

Our oasis: Los Angeles

In our dry desert region without the engineering of water our population would be miniscule. Water is the fountain of life. Like parables from the Holy Bible, God takes are cracked, Dry, and weary souls and brings rebirth, renewal, refreshment.
