I am curating an exhibition at Arena I Gallery-Santa Monica Airport Hanger, of 7-8 collage and mixed-media artists. This work in progress is part of the materials I found at the Central Metal Scrap yard in downtown Los Angeles. I found 30 stainless steel lampshades (I guess that is what they were) that I am transforming into large scale bead forms by welding the lampshades in pairs. This tower is part of the planning process. The forms will be painted in hot pink.
