Anthony Hansen - Morro Bay CA
As an artist, I have focused on using found and reclaimed materials. I like using automotive sheet-metal because it has such character and warmth. Every scratch and spot of rust offers visual texture and interest. Text and type, through the use of old signs and license plates adds dimension and an implied storyline. I enjoy creating pieces that are a patchwork of the past and the present, a mixing of the bright and shiny, as well as the dull and faded.
