These paintings are pure trash… but only on the surface. Beneath their rough exterior is a precisely carved basswood sculpture, and only the paint on the surface provides the exacting trompe l’oeil vision of reality. Artist Tom Pfannerstill creates his unusual sculpture/paintings based on discarded objects he finds on his daily travels. Calling his finds a ‘gift from the street’, they act as a record of his movements and a commentary on our commercial/consumer driven society.
