Artist : Rebecca Klundt
Gather. Break down. Reconstruct. My process begins with a hunt for materials that have been abandoned. I am claiming the no longer useful and mining the piles. I work primarily in wood and acrylic to create two dimensional “constructions”.
My process has grown out of 3 things that are close to center for me. First is this drive to use up resources that might otherwise be wasted. It is the way I create everything from soup to art.
Second, I love the rocks of my mountain home. From the granite cliffs of the Wasatch Range to the sand stone in the south–weathered faces with cracks and textures that must be touched. I try to imitate these delicious joints and cracks in my work.
Third, thoughtful conversation. It is a good day when I have had a chance to talk with someone about things that matter. I want to promote thoughtfulness and introspection, and conversation with each piece. I love the challenge of using simple materials to say something….or to hear something.
