Today we feature a gifted assemblage artist, Rebeca Trevino. She speaks in her own words below.
Only recently have I expanded my horizons and am now using other formats, such as wooden fish, ducks and most recently, a wooden pig.
At the heart of my efforts as an artist is the need to recycle things, to rescue stuff that has been forgotten or thrown away. I call what I do: “OBTAINIUM ART" and the materials I use I call OBTAINIUM, defined as: art materials, not bought new, but obtained in other ways, such as 2nd-hand, dumpster diving, chance findings, or donations.
