From Zac's website: "I started making assemblage artworks of this type in 1999. The
artworks are made entirely out of collected junk, found objects, and
general trash. I glue the
bits of junk to a wooden substrate to form an image, usually faces,
which only can be seen at a distance. I was interested in communicating
visual representation in apparent 2-dimensional space and through the
actual objects used for the medium in 3-dimensional space. It is very
important to me
that I incorporate the actual objects into the art as opposed to a
picture or rendition of it because it better expresses the intention of
the artwork. I feel the
junk is more powerful being present. It is an actual thing to be
reckoned with that existed in this time and place and carries energy in
and of itself."
