I make art from materials considered to be detritus. Instead of buying colour that is pigment taken from the ground, processed and shipped, why not use colour that already exists? Promotional materials and packaging are full of bright or nuanced colour, and come into our households unbidden. What’s more is that the text they include may evoke cities, markets, and this historical moment of consumption-driven ecological stress. Cities are where goods are invented and marketed. It is from cities that consumer persuasion emanates. So my work suggests the urban grid and the bustle to buy and sell. Whether I have woven plastic packaging or cut and glued marketing materials, all these pieces refer to the city’s tight grid and what may burst from its confines.
