​​Aluminum and Wood Constructions

Glyph detail

​​​​​​​​           Glyphs 

In ”Glyphs”, FJHooker’s most recent work, the artist pays homage to aluminum beverage cans, that contemporary symbol of Americana as ubiquitous worldwide as blue jeans and the personal computer. The constructions, made of small primary shaped cuttings from the cans are reassembled into new elegant shapes which now form a novel language of marks and curves in luminous jewel colors. Ancient pottery shards are brought to mind, in this case reconceived and creatively recycled as iconic discarded remnants of our culture.
