William Vollers finds inspiration in the imperfections and natural deterioration of objects. His minimalist wood structures and straightforward titles speak to his deep connection to Zen Buddhism. Each sculpture brings to focus those often overlooked everyday items, granting them a simple elegance, beauty, and importance. They stand, proud and sure, as abstract homages to moments and mementos from a recognizable life.
Vollers collects and sells early American primitive antiques and folk art, a calling that runs parallel to his work as an artist and his general aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi: bringing value to the undervalued and beauty to the transient.
