Jim Shores brings life to discarded objects by transforming them into imaginative sculptures & assemblages. Broken tools, obsolete machinery, aluminum cans, and metal signs are some of his basic materials. Old sewing machines and radiators are a virtual goldmine. Fond of faces & fishes, Jim tends to see them everywhere and he recreates them in the most unlikely places. His garden of yard art and bottle trees is legendary. And as you can see by the photo, Jim stands behind his art.
