Found Objects

Antonio Alvarez

A painter paints in spite of himself, out of necessity for his spirit to survive gracefully and without regrets. There is not a worse painting than the one that was thought of but never executed. When I arrived in the USA (a very young man, then) I had been practicing both Literature and Painting with […]

Combining found elements with those fashioned by my own hand, my work encompasses two- and three-dimensional collage as well as sculptural objects. Infused with a rich sense of history, the essence of my work lies in the age-old struggle between nature and the man-made industrial world. My challenge is to convey that sense of conflict […]

As an artist I work hard to develop images that reflect my interest in surrealism. Some of the major surrealistic artists are one’s you may be familiar with, such as Salvadore Dali, Rene Magritte, Max Ernst and Leonora Carrington. My work compromises what is described as photomontage or collage and uses pieces of many photographs […]

I am interested in exploring and creating connections between objects and images. My compositions focus on actual and imagined links between place, past and present. Using traditional and innovative techniques in my work, I juxtapose paint and wax on wood surfaces with found remnants. These artifacts of personal histories are essential to my artistic process, […]

My work in all mediums is shaped by love of natural forms, surfaces with history, observed expression and spontaneous line.  I work by painting, drawing, print making, and putting things together to solve something. Art making is work, and play. It is serious exploration and always a collaboration of materials and ideas. I attended Rhode […]

I have always been drawn to the ancient art of mosaic, perhaps because I find great beauty in brokenness. The light refracted through tiny shards of glass and those fragments painstakingly surrendered one by one, can together evoke a certain harmony and wholeness. Even though I begin with a vision that is uniquely mine, I […]

Artist Statement • Broken Threads A sewing station in a textile mill sits abandoned but intact, as if the worker walked out mid-shift and never returned. You can picture her sitting there; you can see the color choices she made in gathering her work materials. Christmas decorations sit idly on a desk as though waiting […]

As an artist, I have always found myself split between two disciplines: photography and mixed media. My photographic images reflect the light, forms, and textures in world around me. They have been my eye looking outward. My mixed media work, on the other hand, has been my eye looking inward, reflecting my personal history and […]

In 1975 I began working in Detroit’s Cass Corridor, shaping and assembling discarded motorcycle and salvaged steel parts. I still choose to use mechanical artifacts because I find them singularly precious and beautiful. Although I’ve lived in New York for over 35 years, the subject of my sculptures involves the City of Detroit and it’s […]

 My world is of earth and spirit. Nature is at once a deep source of inspiration, and a comforting healer. More than anything, the quality of light which radiates from and about the subject is what I am moved to capture. I try to express the essence – the spirit of a place, a person, […]

It’s been two years since my last studio tour and during that time I’ve continued to paint improvisations, some more figurative than others. I’ve also revisited sculpture with a series of small scale works, often humorous. In addition I continue to fabricate woodworking projects for fun and profit. This year Jazz Forum will be hosting […]
