Simonsen Art

My works combine found metals, wood, hardware and miscellaneous objects.  The assembly and collaging form a sculptural depth with contrasting textures for a multifaceted effect.  Many of these materials are treated with acrylics, solvents, waxes and stains. Other changes are made by grinding, torching and sanding to reshape and color the various layers of materials.  Each piece has its own characteristics.  The finish is unique and part of the organic process.  This is the intention of the design and will vary through time.  The composition represents the merging of imagination and intuition.
