Rodney Allen Trice
“No object has been neglected too long, been tossed too far or is too ordinary to be a star.” -Rodney Allen Trice
Rodney Trice's world is one of the best places to plot an end to our growing disposable culture. Though recycling might seem to be the clear mission, he prefers the term “refitting.” His process is more “object career counseling” than waste-handling. Simplicity is paramount as is integrity to both the mid-century modern aesthetics and the original object’s first identity.
Trice has been experimenting with used materials and re-envisioning objects for over two decades. He was included in Time magazine’s “Green Design 100 List”. Trice's work is sure to make you rethink the world around you and stir childlike fantasies, whether you see his work as art, whimsical invention, or post-apocalyptic retro decor. H e taps into the past overlaying a future that excites and surprises. Here, anything is possible.
He lives and works in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.
