Artist's description:

I collect the waste card widely used for packaging, from local outlets. I like the idea of recycling material which has been, perhaps, torn, walked upon and discarded, and turning it into art.

I then cut, tear and paint the various pieces. Sometimes I will attempt to remove this fresh oil paint by scoring and scratching the surface and sanding it down to reveal the corrugations and marks beneath.

In ‘Crossing 3’ I have used black oil paint to highlight the lettering and markings already on the surface to make them stand out against the original card. The circle – a universal shape at the heart of our relationship to the world, may appear as 2 hemispheres. My work is not usually narrative but the juxtaposed images collaged into the work may suggest passage to a foreign place and time.
The finished piece is then glazed to prevent damage or dust affecting the surface and a plain 3 cm wide flat white wooden frame holds it together, ready to hang. 64x82x2cm
