Cameron Luft- Artist Statement
From glossy surfboards, custom automobile paint jobs, to slick laptop computers, our culture is fascinated with things that are smooth and shiny. I explore this phenomenon by crafting objects that present an inherent contradiction between what is base and precious.
My family has been in the garbage collection business for over 70 years. Having worked in the industry myself for a number of years I began making artwork from detritus, trash, and recycling. In the spirit of alchemy I transform these base materials into precious objects.
I also engage in the history of art making by producing work that is simultaneously both painting and sculpture and questions where painting ends and sculpture begins.
