I chose to use recycled pistol shells as a commentary on how we view symbols. Using a medium that is not normally associated with creativity and art will hopefully inspire the viewer to question other ways of looking at the world and trying to understand the perspectives of others.

Each Brass Canvas piece is composed of thousands of actual used pistol casings. Casings must be arranged one by one, to form a brass surface, on which, the artist paints.
