Junkyards: The Hidden Beauties Within
I love cars – especially the old rusty and contorted ones. I am drawn to the deep beauty which lies hidden beneath and within contexts where it almost should not be. My goal is to make this beauty visible – to give it a narrative which changes a conventional perception. From haphazard shapes in broken darkness, I reach for any illumination of positivity to highlight.
Surrounding each iconic statue and creation, there is a timeless energy from the mysteries of countless stories residing in the quiet shadows and overgrowth. The breeze speaks with ghostly whistles and inspires the art within these twisted and deteriorating hulks.
Sadly these vintage junkyards are declining as it is more profitable to send off the scrap metal to be recycled. It is important to visually preserve these cultural roadside icons while there are still some left.
