Furniture parts have great appeal and I have created several pieces using chairs with their wonderful curves and repetitive lines. When a non-functioning parlor organ, c.1910 came my way, I couldn’t resist.
As I began to dismantle the organ, I marveled at it’s intricate parts and decided I would give each a special focus. This was accomplished with the addition of material from other genres, including wood, fabric, metal, mirror, paper and paint.
What I am presenting here, I title “Organ Parts Ensemble”, which includes three wall sculptures, one pedestal piece and a large, interactive floor piece that have been reassembled. Here are the individual pieces.
