"It's important for artists to push themselves out of their comfort zones. Since I do not usually use found objects it was challenging to try to make it work for me. The hubcaps gave way to a new and interesting way for me to look at painting. I am also interested in seeing art outside the art world of New York City so I was pleased to participate in such a project as Landfillart."Alana Allen
