His found object assemblage art fit my take on what it should be, and I was motivated and inspired by seeing his work. Then I read his artist's statement, words that could have/should have come right out of my own mouth because they so fit what I do too.
Here it is: "I create my mixed media works intuitively. Arranging objects, typically within a box, I explore and discover what is possible and attempt to create the jamais vu, the never before seen. Unrelated objects acquired at different times and from different places, seemingly by chance, are assembled into new, dynamic, apparently inevitable relationships. This medium and method favor an unconstrained freedom and allow a mystery of coincidence to unfold." ...Harvee Riggs
At times I am annoyed with wordy artist's statements which seem to baffle more than explain and which are filled with art-speak gobbledegook, but Harvee's statement perfectly describes what he does in a few perfectly chosen words. I also loved learning the term, "jamais vu", the never-before seen (contrast with deja vu, the previously seen).
An aside: If my posts are few and far between right now, it is because time is being spent with a loved one with cancer. I'll post as much as I can.
