‘OFFCUTS’ is a celebration of the by-product. Shop waste, materials that would usually be discarded, and found objects often yield shapes and color relationships that would be missed in their original contexts. By taking such overlooked objects, transforming their color, and pairing them with contrasting materials, it is possible to appreciate their inherent qualities. Those qualities could be the purity in the line of dry sea kelp, or the complex optical effect of packing materials. My interest lies in how these ordinary materials continue to spark a visual dialogue. Painting, sculpture and furniture are all part of the same
conversation. The joining of parts is as much a visual and psychological union as it is a strong physical connection. The offcut, because it is not burdened by the primary focus is liberated to find it’s potential through the laws of chance.
Jonathan Anzalone lives and works in San Francisco, Ca. He was born on Long island and graduated with a BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 2003. The past 7 years have been an effort to bind the studio artwork with a business making custom furniture and installations.
