For the past dozen years, I’ve often worked with a visual vocabulary that doesn’t immediately telegraph its status as art. As my starting point, I like to use blemishes, sites, and vernaculars that have been marginalized in some form: the controlled chaos of industrial infrastructure (Open Channel Flow & Chroma Booster), the abandoned limb of an amusement park ride (Greenway Blueway Byway Skyway, Nautical Swing & The Huddle), or the aging tree in a public park (Woozy Blossom & Cypress Landing). I take these abject artifacts and retrofit them to create a ready-made public square. The idea is to surprise while fostering a sense of community around an unlikely object or site.
