A series of pieces created with recycled Chanel Chance perfume bottles, spray paint, paint markers, and gouache.
While discovering new mediums, including glass - they are a continuation of explorations in transparency, layers, and shapes of color to define an object.
Rather than tossing away a carefully crafted expensive piece of product design, these creations juxtapose traditional street art with luxury art - turning the bottles into something new that can be resold for sustainability to the masses.
The intent is to be seen as a reflection of the luxury world's obsession with high-low fashion, and the hypocrisy of constantly manufacturing new things to look old in an effort to be hip.
A series of paintings repurposing a batch of old found floppy diskettes with gouache paint, acrylic paint markers, and spray paint.
