Aesthetics of (Mis)Use

I've always been fascinated by degraded surfaces - rusty truck boxes, scratched tools, bent signage, Boba Fett's helmet. Beautiful veneers that change from the rigors of daily life. Chipped, scratched and faded but still useful. Stories that are told and those that will forever remain a mystery. As I get older, these observations have become more personal. The patinas we suffer through life do not keep us from the conversation but enhances it. This work explores that concept in minimalist forms and muted palettes.
