These pieces are simple combinations that are often done quickly, although sometimes objects are hanging around my studio for years before I realize what pairs with what.
Who doesn’t enjoy referencing Duchamp? Objects speak to me and it’s cathartic to present them in a new light: different contexts than their original purpose.
They’re fun to make – in fact they seem to make themselves. I wanted to have this category to distinguish these pieces from the other assemblages, which often involve a fair amount of process.
