Larry Zdeb has been called the “Master of Found Objects and Personal Mementos” by the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center. Larry employs the use of found objects and recycled paint. Many constructions are developed by the kind of detritus discovered. He never sketches anything out; he has the parts, the instructions are in his head and he puts them together! The use of “obvious” items is avoided. The items in his work are juxtaposed in such a way that the viewer might ask, “What is that?!” Larry’s credo is “Less is more and composition is everything!” Zdeb was awarded the second place prize in the Michigan Fine Arts Competition in 2013.
