Producing art from the scraps of the past is popular among hobbyists and professionals. Stephen Schwark takes this art form to another level. His latest piece uses the implements that led to the change of the Tallgrass from an open plain to a farm and ranch culture to produce a bison, the very symbol of the plains and Tallgrass. Artists use many materials, styles and medias to tell stories. They are the history and culture recorders of society. When a society leaves the arts and humanities behind, they loose their own stories and history. Although artists produce physical works, in actuality, they capture a society, place or time and tell that story.
