Artist: Larry EllingsonHe/Him/His

Aritistic Discipline: Music, Visual

My visual work is a kind of additive sculpture, combining assemblage, painting, photography and fabricating. Some pieces have lights and sound. I’m also a sound artist, composing, performing and producing music utilizing electronics, saxophone and found sound.

It’s fun to make stuff that’s interesting to look at. Finding new ways of seeing the commonplace seems like a good idea to me. Many of us daydream and wander through our imaginations. I bring back souvenirs.
