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 ‘Other echoes 3’ colour - earthy browns and yellows - 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. The three blue painted panels have been added as a contrast and the yellow painted circle highlights the printed image of a Graeco-Roman statue. 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). 86x117x2cm

The piece may be an attempt to express vague musings about the passage of time made corporeal through certain images, surfaces and textures.
