artist sandhi schimmel gold makes treasures out of trash- literally.
"my work reflects our society's obsession with beauty through advertising-
and the endless images that bombard us daily. it is a purposeful intermix of
images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces-
images and text- from advertising that arrives through my mailbox.
assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new
image- an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my
imagination, utilizing materials that
would otherwise go to waste."
