Hand printed torn paper collage on salvaged board

Description

My work focuses on the deeper emotional addiction we have in consumerist behavior. The notion that convenience is more important than ethics in disposable culture has weighed heavily in the creation of this artwork.

I consciously choose to work with discarded waste objects as the starting point of each piece. I use items such as plastic, cardboard and foam packaging.

I carefully print these objects onto a predetermined mathematical selection of coloured paper, using a combination of relief printing techniques.

The prints are then cut or torn, representing the subconscious destruction of beauty. The paper fragments are then reassembled and manipulated into controlled chaos.
