Rex approaches his art-making as a builder and is tactile in his approach to constructing replications of buildings he sees. He likes to work with cardboard, tools, metal, and wire sculpturally to make models of houses and buildings. His sense of humor comes out in the portraits he paints, often including witty thought bubbles and social commentary.
