Pan American Art Projects is very pleased to announce our next exhibition of works by artists Ted Larsen and Carolina Sardi. These two artists work with metal as their preferred material in very unique and distinctive ways. Ted Larsen has been working with recycled metal since 2000. The found material dictates the colors and the forms that would come together like puzzles. However random it might appear, Larsen's work is carefully planned from beginning to end. His creative process can be lengthy; according to the artist “It can take years to develop the forms, with many false starts and revisions.” It is precisely this premeditated and conscious approach of art that makes Larsen's pieces so far-reaching. His thoughtful method includes the titles he gives to the pieces, often bringing in philosophical concepts. A Michigan native, Larsen is currently living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He holds a BA from Northern Arizona University and is the recipient of many awards, including the one given by the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation.His work can be found at The New Mexico Museum of Art, The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, The Edward F. Albee Foundation, and at the Krasel Art Center in Michigan, among others institutions.
