If you have a garden, you probably love spending a lot of time in it. What’s more, you definitely enjoy gardening, watering the plants and so on. But did you know that you can make beautiful artwork from a shovel head? Let’s discover this breathtaking garden decor idea!
An artist called Denice Bizot, decided to make something fascinating. She has been rummaging through junkyards for the past 15 years and she collected objects that she can turn into amazing artwork. Her garden decor collection of sculpted shovel heads has garnered plenty of attention and for good reason.
Believe it or not, but this woman pays painstaking attention to things that typically get lost to time and neglect.
Her tendency to focus on found items has environmental and social implications. What’s more, her work also speaks to the nature of gentrification.
In cities undergoing the process of gentrification, refuse reigns supreme. When contractors and businesspeople move in, everything else that’s there gets pushed out.
This woman collects shovel heads in cities she goes and uses them as blank canvases. As you can see, she makes big efforts to breathe new life into the unused shovels.
“For me,” she writes, “the idea of reclaiming, deconstructing, and transforming so-called ‘junk’ into works of sculpture is fascinating.”
According to the artist, “reworking the surface in terms of color and texture is required to bring out an attractive exterior that was once covered in mold or pitted by weather.”
