Bart Vargas has been exploring the artistic potential of trash for over a decade now, transforming recycled waste into playful and thought-provoking objects. Using pattern, repetition and form, he creates paintings, sculptures and installations which all blur the identity of everyday materials. These time capsules characterize the early 21st century as an era of limited resources and conversely high consumption rates.
Vargas has a BFA from the University of Nebraska in Omaha and is currently attending University of Minnesota for a graduate degree in sculpture. His work has been exhibited across the country and can be found in private, public and corporate collections across North America, Europe and Asia.
