Down Home is an expansive installation of all new artworks inspired by the unconventional yet practical culture of blue collar folks and the eccentric places they inhabit. Utilizing found objects, discarded materials, wood, steel, and paint, Down Home runs the gamut from large scale kinetic artworks to more intimate found object sculptures and paintings.
