"I am at the mercy of my material..."
Josh Daily is a Portland, Oregon based metal and found material sculpture artist. He creates art from recycled and repurposed materials in a contemporary folk/primitive style. He utilizes a variety of materials such as metal, construction waste, to even silverware and ordinary household appliances. Materials he uses will take decades to biodegrade - if at all. By re-purposing discarded materials, and removing them from the waste stream, he creates art inspired by the beauty of items found in every day life.
"When looking for art supplies in everyday life, it is a constant secondary thought process." Josh says. "For example, as I'm walking down the street or sitting with a group of people, I'm constantly studying my surroundings. I see everyday objects and think that would make a great eye, knee, or if I cut that piece of metal I could make it look feathers. That whatchamacallit would make a great base for a coffee table. I am at the mercy of my material."
