Jeffrey Comulada (Fallbrook, California)
Using mixed media and found objects, I create 3D assemblages inspired from literature and cinema. As a member of ASFA (Association of Science Fiction Artists) many of my art pieces have a science fiction thread running through them, but not all. Being a wood artisan, I favor using wood as my primary medium.
Growing up in Southern California on the Westside of Los Angeles, it was easy to be inspired with the coastline and the natural beauty of local landscapes. Studying art at Beverly Hills High and later at UCLA, my artist path was diverted when my attention focused on business administration. Returning to art after a varied career in corporate sales, management, real estate and wood working, I circled back into art and found assemblage: the collection of disparate and found objects to create a sculptural composition.
Finding items at thrift stores, refuse containers or general discard, I create assemblages that seek to make sense of the world and to create beauty. Many of my themes and ideas spring from literature or social issues with a hint of politics.
