JENNY  FILLIUS       RECYCLED   TIN   ARTWORK
Jenny Fillius: Energetic and colorful wall-mountable tin sculpture pieced together from salvaged metal pieces (toys, religious iconography, advertisements). It sometimes has the look of something a junkyard hobo savant would create in a delirium.

The work I create comes from my imagination. Anything can trigger an idea, an overheard expression, a story, something I see on the street or the tin itself; literally anything. These ideas get sketched out and eventually end up as artwork in recycled tin, or more accurately recycled decorative sheet metal. The images I create are bold, colorful, and often humorous.By re-purposing used metal food containers, gleaned from many sources; deconstructing them to be reconfigured into something other than their original form or intent, it becomes artwork as a still life or a narrative piece.
I was born in California, lived in Mexico and after nearly dying in Seattle my commitment to tin work has never been more focused.
