“"Integral to my work is the re-use of materials. Placing each one in an intimate setting, the work becomes an artwork within an artwork."”
Michael Sanzone believes in reincarnation— at least when it comes to objects. The New York and Connecticut-based artist collects everything from whiskey barrels to postage stamps and turns them into works of art. This process, he says, links experiences to the materials found there, giving them new meaning and connecting the past, present, and future. Michael’s work has been displayed in such spaces as a distillery, an iconic department store, a cruise ship, and, good old fashioned galleries.
