UZZ BUZZ ( The Lone Arranger )
The artist Uzz Buzz grew up on the Isle of Staten, NYC. After spending years as an award winning photographer, he became fascinated with the shapes of scrap wood during a stint as a Security Guard at a construction site. As he saw the shapes of discarded wood as one would see in Rorschach inks he started to apply ink and offset the ink to paper. This graduated into a technique that you see now.
Another influence on Uzz Buzz was the revelation of the shadow box constructions of Joseph Cornell. The concept of taking disparate items and assembling them into a harmonious arrangement struck a synonymous chord with him and he started a journey on combining the two methods which resulted in the unique style he’s developed over the years.
Currently, Uzz Buzz is experimenting with combining mixed-media, especially stamps, into his new expression of creativity.
The artist has been in group and one person shows in NYC, Denver, CO, and is currently a member of the Kansas City Artist Coalition.
“I meditate and/or pray before each session that my work is balanced, and brings forth a positive spiritual energy to the environment of whomever has it in their home or business.”
You may notice that almost every Uzz Buzz piece utilizes a circle. To him, it represents the presence of God, and completeness. Interesting enough, he researched the personality of those who like circles and found this:
The Circle is a symbol of harmony. Those who choose this shape are interested in good interpersonal relations. The highest value for the circle is people and their well being. This is the most benevolent of the five figures. The Circle is the glue that holds the team or the family together. They stabilize the group and have a high capacity for sympathy and empathy.
