“Pareidolia”, 2012
Mason Jars, Acrylic and Wood, 55” x 64”
“Pareidolia” is meant to take away the function of the glass jars. From the blurred meaning of art, I am lead to think that anything that serves no function can then step into the realm of artwork. Starting as a joke, this idea of removing an ordinary items function became very impactful, and reinvented my inspiration to view and create artwork.
