REPURPOSED - THE ARTIST INSIDED ME, 5min., Documentary
Directed by Matthew Dessner
On the Gold Coast of Long Island New York lives Tom Malloy. A third generation master lawn mower and farm equipment welder and repairman. He is also a prolific artist, creating abstract and realistic sculptures from found objects he has collected from the estates on the Gold Coast for over 50 years. From initial sketch to final sculpted artwork, Tom Malloy can not only create magnificent art from found pieces, but completely repurposes them and his own sense of being.
