Gallery: Charles Spurrier Creates Patterned 3D Paintings From Thousands...

Spurrier's mission rescues objects from landfills but also from their ordinary, every day jobs.

A canvas surface is usually off limits for viewers to ever touch, leaving the artist’s process a mystery. The tactile nature of Spurrier’s works brings art to a more engaging level, encouraging discovery and concentration of the materials used. He even occasionally creates sculptures with glowing lights to bring attention to the aesthetic value of these otherwise discarded pieces of plastic.

These canvases are multi dimensional not only in form but also in function. Spurrier’s mission rescues objects from landfills but also from their ordinary, every day jobs. His swirling or striped patterned pieces breathe new and exciting life into a milk crate or plastic cup that will never be viewed the same way again, all while helping the environment.

His work can be seen at Margaret Thatcher Projects at 539 West 23rd Street in Chelsea until March 24th.
