Hello and Welcome

I am Richard Trabucco also known as dragonneus (drah-go-nee-us) My favorite media are soft metals such as copper, brass, bronze and aluminum. I also work mixed media with paint, found objects, wood, clay, stone, crystal, just about anything I can get my hands on.

Dream Inspired

      I have always had a love for the reddish metal, copper. Most of my earlier work was done joining metal using cold methods. Since then I have discovered, various metal wire, clay, quartz crystal, 2-part tabletop epoxy, wood. The list goes on and on. Utilizing life experience though various learned professions such as pipe cutting, woodwork, metal corrosion, metal etching, structural maintenance, and simply being imaginativly observant has lead me down this path of creativity.

Much of the art I have created came from my dreams. Since I was young I've always been a serial insomniac. Nightmares and wildly vivid dreams have been the fuel to creation. Sometimes when I awake, right after a dream, ill write down or auto-draw my thoughts and feelings of the dream/nightmare. I have come to realize that sometimes you must bend and respect the shape of the materials and go with it. 


I'm always willing to share knowledge and converse about art. Let's connect.
