Beautiful Assemblage

I recently discovered the work of artist Christopher Hynes, a man with a love for lost objects who creates what he calls “visual poems.” He opens a dialogue of social commentary by using drawers and items that are leftover from construction sites and remodeling jobs, basically any “leftover materials from our throwaway society” as his canvas. His works are thoughfully put together using vintage materials and three dimensional objects. Whether the piece is serious, whimsical or just plain outlandish, they are all beautifully crafted.

This is such an enormous inspiration to me. I also make three-dimensional collages in old drawers. Thank you so much for introducing me to Christopher. I’m writing a blog for domino magazine about decorating my apartment with all kinds of found objects and vintage stuff and one of the things I’m trying to figure out is how to display all my “boxes”.
