I’m Garret Kane, an assemblage sculpture artist based in Brooklyn NY and here are a few words on art!
All human invention is the application of our desires and ideas upon matter and energy - and I believe art is the purest form of this conceit - it's sole purpose being to push matter and energy to the most interesting places it can go.
Well, that's the idea I like to operate from, and it’s what inspires much of what I do.
Specifically the mediums, concepts and techniques I prefer all revolve around this association with base nature. They embody the idea that human beings were made by nature and through technology we attempt to recreate nature in our own image.
Lastly, because nature inspires everything I do and because I love our planet, 10% of all my profits go to the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) which you can check out here:
