Ted Larsen

Ted Larsen’s reductive sculptures are not process driven, but rely heavily on an archeological gleaning from the discarded shells of manufacturing. The rich patinas of his surfaces are excavated from salvaged scrap metal, dilapidated automobiles and found objects. The surface’s richness is formed by decades of use, weather, and travel. Though there is no deliberate attempt to identify the source of his material, there is an affinity in the shapes he creates that harkens a familiarity.
