Art from reclaimed car parts by Scott McMillin

California mixed media artist Scott McMillin chops up reclaimed car parts to create geometric works of art. Scrap metal from cars is cut into squares and rectangles and assembled like a jigsaw puzzle to create textural wall sculptures, some of which closely resemble paintings by Mondrian. Some pieces are grouped by colour whereby subtle differences in hue lend to an intriguing abstract composition. In other works, he utilises bumps, scratches, rust and ridges in the found materials, all of which add an element of contrast and surprise.
