Mike McCollum & Al Honig
Al Honig has been described as a “lifelong hoarder of wonderful things”; treasures that are carefully curated to be included in his sculptural constructions. His works are not assemblages but constructions using objects of many different materials which he subtly changes to make them fit together to form a single sculpture.
Al’s whimsical constructions awaken my inner child!
Mike’s abstract landscapes are created from wood (sticks, branches, found wood objects) and colored resin. He invites viewers to experience landscape through the use of color and placement of found and manipulated objects. While his cabinets explore the ritual uses of furniture, his drawings, which are encapsulated in epoxy resin, find interest in the relationships between the “stars” of art history such as skulls, skeletons, Mona Lisa, and the knots that bind them together.
