Todd Jones

"Exploring the serendipitous phenomena from the processes of painting, I recycle mistinted house paint into sculptural skins. These skins are rolled up, taking on the forms of fungi or flowers and are superimposed on three-dimensional forms derived from natural elements."

Polypore - Mistint house paint on a found log, 42 x 23 x 3 in.
