Steven Sachs “Packs and Flocks” Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:
713-854-4246


As an outsider artist, Steven Sachs sees himself as an urban archaeologist, whose quest is to transfer the original use of found objects into whimsical creations. The assemblages that result from his finds are a playful and humorous take on discarded objects and a repurposed vision into three dimensional sculptures. Steven has a fervent eye for composing unrelated and often fragmentary objects into a unified structure. His resources range from man-made materials such as rusted nails, crushed cans, and printed circuit boards to reclaimed wood which he transfers into three dimensional sculptural pieces of art.  His dogs are testimony to his ideas of transforming found objects which undergo a complete metamorphosis of structure and substance that we can all relate to. Often, an added detail completes his pursuit of drawing the viewer into a playful world.

Birds are Steven’s second domain of the animal kingdom. He did not afford them the lightheartedness that he bestowed on the dogs; yet, the display of birds in their diversity and beauty reminds us to stop and watch. 

On View: February 2 – February 24, 2019
