Jeff Fontaine

"My work focuses on the innate beauty created as man-made objects break down and naturally age. Each work is based on my photography of old signs, rusting train cars and crumbling architecture that are uniquely interesting but common to the urban way of life. My studio process is a controlled attempt at replicating and suspending the natural law of entropy and the breakdown of things. My current work consists of “quilted” metal panels collaged together, which play on color balance as well as textures, lines and geometrical juxtapositions. The natural process of rusting and pitting are sped up and somewhat controlled to create the desired composition using water, heat and other techniques." -Jeff Fontaine
