Each of these sculpture/paintings are 100% remade from scratch. Unless otherwise stated they are made of 100% archival papers and acrylic or oil paints. I am not painting over real trash. I cut, mold and hand paint the paper cups to there form and then crush them. Once I have crushed them I continue to paint them in a destressed manner. I also create my own dirt from paint to wash in the crevasses of the sculpture/paintings. These works are on a 1-1 scale and are made to look like trash at first glance, but when you look closer, you will see they are paintings and sculpture combined.
