Norman Kary, Texas Sculpture Group
From Plano, Texas
My fascination with found objects goes as far back as my childhood when I scavenged the fields and Industrial parks near our house in Los Angles. My parents never knew what treasures I would bring home after walking from school. It was only later in my life I realized I could use these objects in such a way and call them Art. Now after almost 40 years of calling myself an artist I use them as metaphors of my youth but more importantly I try to allow these objects and images a stage to tell their own history. And in doing so tell us about ourselves.
