{SummaryTitle}

David Poppie is a master of found object sculptures, his recent work involves finding disposable objects to create two- and three-dimensional art pieces. These mass objects that Poppie uses for his sculptures include colored pencils, cassette tapes, tea bags and various other random objects. These items are often looked over by the everyday person and are generally dismissed as rubbished.

On David Poppie’s website and artist statement, he claims that, “[t]hrough the gathering of the discards of contemporary culture, I ask the viewer to reconsider the function and value of these objects.” Poppie asks that people reassign their values and re-contextualize the meaning behind the art pieces used in the art sculptures. David Poppie’s art is a commentary on the disposable nature of modern culture.
