Since 1994, artist Thomas Deininger has been making sculptures from junk he finds on the beach. If you watch from distance, his 3D sculptures look more like drawings, paintings or ordinary sculptures, and not like trash. You can see toys, covers, packaging and other kind of junk transformed into art.
Deininger says that he is an “optimistic Nihilist making things to help me process the mayhem….maybe it’s just adding to the confusion” living and working in Bristol, Rhode Island. The Art graduate also makes two-dimensional paper collages from photographs he finds in newspapers, magazines, and pop culture materials such as Barbie dolls.
