Garbage Person Art Show by Hayden Davis
"Consumer culture in America makes many things go from useful to useless in a matter of minutes. I believe in second chances. When I moved to New York, I couldn’t help but pick up forsaken ephemera: a pink raffle ticket, a purple candy wrapper, a blue plastic glove. I wondered about their lives, reveled in their colors. Over the years of collecting, patterns began to surface. I realized that these useless pieces had far more worth than their previous owners may have thought. While one oddity may be insignificant, combined with a colorful collection, you can create something magical. This collection takes discarded objects and gives them a platform to be reassessed, appreciated, and given new life. Here is what we’ve left behind, ready to be greeted with new interest and appreciation."
The Art show will be at the Geronimo Gallery in China Town. Come view and purchase pieces, prints, and zines at the gallery show.
