Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

'Below' is a collage from my series called DIY. The images use vinyl lettering I bought from a DIY shop that was closing down. Unfortunately the lettering lot contained no vowels, so I decided to use the consonants to make unfinished words adding an element of ambiguity. I also used three pieces of square Chinese paper, one of them metallic, giving the picture a structured linear composition. I used a limited palette, to almost create a monochrome graphic-like quality, then layered line and stencilled letters and words over the surface. 'Below' also contains a drawn image of a female figure. The pictures are meant to be humorous, colourful, aesthetic, with a twist in the text that contains a word laden with innuendo.

Materials used:
