Series, 'Look Inside'

Recently I made a series of robot pieces on hinged doors. They are made to hang on the wall, and swing open to reveal secret bonus art inside. The series remembers the time when I was a kid and would draw sketches or glue text and photos onto nearly every piece of mail I'd send. It all comes around again when you let yourself experiment, and that's what this series is for me.

Each of the pieces is 7x7 inches, on reclaimed wood, with hinges and handles scavenged out of my workshop. Items inside are artifacts from different times and places in my life, so each piece is autobiographical in one way or another. I placed mirrors inside, to reflect light and to bring the viewer into the work as well. When you look at them, they're about you too.
