Sculptures and reclaimed materials

“Bottle to Bottle”

New York, 2023

“Bottle to Bottle'' is more than just an installation; it’s a call to action. The central element of the installation, a house symbolizing safety and belongings, urges viewers to consider their relationship with the plastics, inspiring innovative solutions like refill stations and a reevaluation of consumption habits. Community involvement was at the core of “Bottle to Bottle”. Individuals from the community donated recycled empty detergent bottles and actively participated in the installation process, embedding them into the structures’s rebar walls. This interactive artist process engaged participants and observers, sparking reflection on their use of single-use plastics and their impact on the environment.



“Stop and Smell the Flowers”

New York, 2022

A trilogy of outdoor sculptural installations crafted from upcycled and reclaimed materials, each portraying vibrant flowers. These standalone structures are designed for enduring display in exterior environments. The bases feature robust metal plating, while welded rebar forms the stems to uphold the blossoms.

Utilizing materials sourced from Gem Metal Spinning & Stamping in Long Island City, known for their decades-long expertise in creating light fixtures, the installations incorporate diverse elements such as vinyl, metal, chain, bicycle rims, stop signs, and windshield wipers.

The underlying intention is to establish a connection between viewers and nature, offering a platform for dialogue regarding the interplay between our environment and the materials prevalent in urban settings. Resplendent in color and visually arresting, akin to real flowers in a garden, these installations beckon observers to contemplate the intricate relationship between urbanity and the natural world.
