Christiansen’s works are re-creations and deconstructions composed from found couches, armchairs, tables, mattresses and bed frames. Hunting the surrounding area for abandoned furniture, he reconstructs his finds into animals or deconstructs to create various “trophies” including “antler mounts” and stretched furniture “pelts.”
Nevada Arts Council artist receptions are privately funded and no state or public funds are used to host receptions.
