Ted Larsen

Minimal Art

March 25, 2021

Ted Larsen is an American contemporary artist whose works are created with minimalist ideas to explore the nature of materiality. Going against the norm of trying to establish a single theme or overarching agenda, his studio practice instead thrives within spontaneity and experimentation. Since 2001, the artist has been using alternative and salvage materials in his work. Larsen constructs his assemblages of detritus to re-purpose the materials and re-identify their meanings. This use of purposed “non-art” materials forms the basis for a constantly new kind of ready-made. A Pollock-Krasner Foundation recipient, Ted Larsen received his BA from Northern Arizona University.
