Scott Ashley ... neon with thought

In my recent series of sculptures I have taken common everyday objects and transformed them in a way that expresses the psychological, emotional and perceptual attachments we have with the objects that surround us. In some of the works I have made a direct modification that denies the original use of the item rendering it non-functional; asking the viewer to re-evaluate it in its new state. In other works, additions have been made that reflect our own dysfunctions that we often project onto the objects and situations of our daily lives. By re-contextualizing these familiar items the viewer is asked not to rely upon pre-determined definitions but is challenged to use their own personal experience to redefine the object and its meaning.
