Work Space / Doreen (Doree) Valenza

“Here are some shots of my small but productive little studio. If someone else lived here it would be a bedroom for their kids… but since I do not have any.. I should be ashamed to even take a photo … but a friend of mine told me that all the works I produce from this little space… I do not neeeed a bigger space!!! yeh right.
every time I go to do something I have to move something… oh well.”         

“I was in the middle of painting Computer Virus series… see attached they are now
hanging at this restaurant…  hung it today!!!”

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...

  1. Thanks for the photos, Doree. Everyone can see my work space at the top of this page. I’m having a hard time getting other artists to send in their pics. I wouldn’t trust an artist with a clean table!


  2. thanks for showing my transformation from the top of my workspace onto a wall…
    I do clean it otherwise I cannot focus with such a mmmmmeeessss!!!

  3. I cleaned my workspace today. Took ALL day. But, it got so I couldn’t see or find anything. I’ll be posting photos soon. Before and after.
