Broken Song

Sculpture. (Broken, repaired, and upcycled Ukulele) Ukelele with acrylic, recycled denim and mixed media.
Approx. 2.5″ x 7.5″ x 21″

I have a ukulele curse. I have owned 3 and tried to learn to play them all. Each one was a hand-me-down. Each one was broken by a guest in my home, or an unavoidable mishap.
I don’t think I’ll be trying to learn this instrument again any time soon. But throwing the third broken uke away wasn’t going to happen either.
Many upcycled trinkets and found objects have been applied using the same concoction and methods as my paintings and other sculptures.
It makes me feel a bit better about all the failed attempts to own one and use it for its intended purpose. It has a new life as an art piece.
