This series of found object wooden palettes were taken from the streets of San Francisco, altered, and then placed back into their original location.  Wooden palettes are unspoken personalities of capitalism in our everyday field of vision.  They are vessels or conduits for the goods and services, which are exchanged.  Palettes adorn our streets and businesses waiting to be transported around the world like currency.  Each tell a story of their use and how they have been repaired and manipulated.  Covering the surface with the industrial airplane paint creates a reference to "the new," while the object is still constrained by the jagged and irregular form of the flawed lumber.
