Artist Statement:

In my current series of mixed media sculptures, most of the works are not planned out from their beginning to their conclusion; rather they develop as each piece of the sculpture is fastened to the next piece. This intuitive way of working suits my creative approach and allows me to quickly change direction without the piece looking forced or contrived. For the most part, I use found objects because of sustainability and viewers familiarity with the objects. Dustin Davis
