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.

Then I cut, tear and paint the various pieces. Colour – usually earthy
browns, greys, yellows and greens - is kept minimal as an alternative to
the high gloss of most modern advertising imagery and also to emphasise
the surface and texture of the work. I then attempt to remove this
fresh oil paint by scoring and scratching the surface and sanding it
down to reveal the corrugations beneath. I thin the oil paint and
sponge it into the card so that it seeps naturally into the folds and
marks already there and provides subtle colour variations.

In ‘Masque 2’, I have used 3 pieces of painted card arranged together.
The circles, universal shapes at the heart of our relationship to the
world, were already in the card and I added colour for contrast.

The work was then glazed to prevent damage or dust affecting the surface
and the piece contained in a plain 3 cm flat white wooden frame , ready
to hang. 57x87x2cm
