Recompose came about after a visit to a local jumble shop filled with piles of random of objects, vaguely sorted into categories like ‘doorknobs’ ‘lampshades’ ‘doll parts’ etc. In a wheel barrow in the back I found a pile of sun-bleached cow bones. I picked one up, it smiled at me, so I bought it and turned it into a sculpture. I’d like to think there is reincarnation, that’s what this assemblage is about for me.
Cow bone with added bisque, epoxy resin and polymer assemblage, painted with acrylic, in a 9″ x 12″ x 6′ lucite box. Ready to hang. Can also be displayed tabletop.
