Wabi Sabi Art

Rust, corrosion, and decay...also known as "junk."

"Aging has a wonderful beauty, and we should have respect for that." --Eartha Kitt

Yes, it’s a gallery of junk. The stuff most people rush to throw out because its old and worn out. But isn't this representative of aging? And why don't we see beauty in the natural cycle of life? Dilapidated objects hold a sense of mystery and secrets to ponder. Are they at the end of their useful life or a living surface still developing?

I happen to like junk. Well, not the kind that’s taking up the real estate in that drawer in the kitchen. I like this kind of junk. The stuff most everyone discards. Or walks past.

Rust, peeling paint, scratches, and corrosion: they taunt me. I find something in a pattern of peeling paint or rust, and I have to find a way to get you to look at it. I want you to see the beauty in the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. That’s the world of Wabi Sabi Art. Coaxing beauty out of ugliness.

For the love of abstracts, click on the images so you can figure out what in the heck they are. I spent a lot of time writing up these descriptions. Let's not have them go to waste. Besides, there's display options, sizes, and pricing information too.
