These are Not Pieces of Trash They Are Detailed Paintings on Carved Wood

tom-pfannerstill05

What you’re looking at is not a discarded cigarette package, it’s a detailed painting by artist Tom Pfannerstill on a carved piece of basswood. His artworks are made based on objects he finds in the street, which he carefully catalogs, noting the time and place of each. These re-created artifacts act as a very personal record of his movements through time and space. For him, creating these 3D memories is “strangely comforting in a world that is increasingly electronic and virtual”.

    Making art out of garbage; Quintessential Recycling! I am sure our previous Mayor, here in New York, would love it. I did.
    Seeing good in garbage; how juxtaposedly great! And, a great job!
    Never letting go of the past, but, putting a spin on it, that is positive.
    Art Therapy!
