Pencil Abstractions

Artist David Poppie creates these amazing assemblages using hundreds of split colored pencils. His work involves the reclaiming of disposable objects that are generally disregarded and ignored by the everyday person. David explains, "Through the gathering of the discards of contemporary culture, I ask the viewer to reconsider the function and value of these objects. I also reassign their value by re-contextualizing them by creating a piece of art from them. Besides utilizing the formal issues that interest me, based in the Minimalist school, I also am making a commentary on the disposable nature of contemporary culture."Find out more about David's work here.
