Dustin Burgert
       Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps,presents Artist Dustin Burgert. "One man's trash is another man's treasure," Dustin says. "I have always had the ability to look beyond what something is in order to see what it can be." Dustin creates his art on recycled wood products and his work is progressive, each piece inspired by some aspect of the piece that came before it. "Although each piece is unique, this approach gives my collection an unseen unity and sequence. Building on layers of texture and color, my hope is that the viewer finds inspiration in my work to recycle and reuse the things that surround them which may not be living up to their full potential."
