All That Can Shake is Gonna Shake
Found object assemblage
To have your sense of stability shaken is one of the deepest, most personal meaningful disturbances that a person can experience. That is the only reasoning that I can find for how the March 31, 2020 Earthquake affected my inner man and I knew right away that I wanted to somehow capture that in a piece of assemblage art.
This was made using items from the Stoddard Trail in Nampa that I collected while taking a walk with my son and my dog.
Unique, imaginative, provoking, detailed…. These are a few words that have been used to describe Shawn’s work and methods. By using found objects and refurbishing them in his assemblage pieces, he been able to bring his art into a variety of public places, reaching a wide variety of people who often have had no prior interest in art – which he says is his greatest joy when showing and creating his art work.
