Edward Shalala

Like the actual materials, the experience is both nostalgic, yet, new. Retro, still, modern.

Although highly visual in nature, the scale and texture of these works explore other sensory perceptions. The sculptures explore personal themes relating to self-exploration, particularly, my own questions regarding breaking down, being re-built, and how many times “rebirth” can occur. Is it then new or different? The usage of light reflects the idea that these discarded and unwanted objects can transcend the boundaries of “trash” into something to be desired. What was once broken and empty is now full of light and has been carefully nursed back to health and utilization.
