Artist of the Day DOREE VALENZA

I do not start with detailed drawings- sometimes I don’t even know how I start!. With the collages i start with a color background and then start cutting up paper etc. it just happens….. I have this saying…- I am like an actor in the moment- so lost in the role that it can never be recreated. I have tried to re create some pieces and it just never works out the same way…. have to be ” in the moment”
Instead of thinking if something will sell… just do it for yourself 1st. you have to be happy with what you are creating.
If no one understands it, likes it, buys it… you made it and it came from within. It is an expression of being.

About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
