Introducing Ted Larsen.

I am loving these ingots of scrap metal and other found materials. Who knew the “discarded debris of American consumer culture” could look so good?

Florid, 2006. 27 1/2 x 21 1/2 x 1"

In a sharp turn from his prior works in pastel of landscapes and barns (see end of post), Larsen has been focused exclusively on making these labor intensive, architectural assemblages from found material.

Flange, 2006. 14 x 11 x 2”

His elaborate process includes painstakingly deconstructing, manipulating, distressing, bending and repainting the metal. The piece is then mounted on a wood structure.
