Brutalized Delights

Chad Wys' "Brutalized Delights" series investigates the themes of ownership and object history, as well as the relationship between kitsch and art. Many of Chad's materials have been discovered in thrift stores where they have been donated and discarded by their previous owners. By altering these objects he is  introducing a second narrative into their histories as cultural artifacts. By acknowledging their status as objects of kitsch consumption, he is suggesting the capability of transcending the barriers of high and low art depending upon the act of interpretation, awareness, and purpose.
