What & Why
I pick up scraps, fragments, bits, rubbish, news, tickets, cultural, political and my own events, leftovers and recycled work from my studio and use this in my collage work. .
I force these fragments from everyday life into a fixed geometric composition, simplifying and distorting them in the process, making new meanings and new stories. Like a neverending Netflix series with endless episodes, documenting present life as it happens.
I work with collage and acrylics, often in pairs, and always in series, playing the same tune over and over again but different every time. Folllowing a set of rules and then disobeying them.
It has become a part of the artistic practice not to buy new stuff, but use what I have, find and inherit.
