In my work I combine painting, collage and decollage (cutting or sanding away the built up surface to reveal layers below). I am fascinated by the combination of text and image in art, and in ‘The Curve’ the free association of the figure with the cut-up text creates a poetic work with an ambiguous narrative.
The text is cut from pages of novels. In my variation of the cut up technique I cut the ‘poem’ I create out in one section. This is distinct from the cut up technique of cutting out strips of words and re-arranging them randomly.
