I make things, often from parts of other things.
Known primarily for his assemblage and installation work, Lovejoy repurposes existing artifacts and fragments, arranging them to form new compositions. His site-specific installations tend toward multiples of items – lenses, books, clocks.
His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in California, Hawaii and Oregon and is in collections in the U.S. and Europe. He has won a few awards, and in 1993 was named one of the “Art Stars of California” by Art in California magazine. In 2015, his sculptures served as props in a short film produced by Terry Gilliam, and he was commissioned for several permanent installations in Google Canada’s headquarters in Kitchener, Ontario.
Since 2012, he has had a studio on the mezzanine of the Spring Arts Tower in downtown Los Angeles, overlooking the Last Bookstore, and open to the public.
