My name is Anthony Arevalo of Assembled In House.
I make pieces out of materials that bear the marks from a previous life – from common building materials to found objects bleached by the desert sun.
As the child of a carpenter, I developed an early appreciation for aesthetics. I’m drawn to repetitive shapes, markings, and the arrangement of materials made by laborers.
I see beauty in the way blue-collar workers arrange their materials – out of necessity in a functional, tactile way.
My background in construction, formal art and bicycle mechanics have led me to a process that is calculated, contemplative, improvisational, and intuitive.
