A new series of collages and textiles.

A new series of collages and textiles, capturing the “beauty & hope” in decline, before its gone and continues my investigation into, the disintegration and decay of the environment, of life and the human psyche.

I have been rescuing and renewing things for decades. Many of my artworks are created from discarded materials and old bits & pieces in a state of flux. For me, renewing and recycling, discarded objects, changes their meaning, opening up a whole different way of thinking.  Allowing for new perspectives and ideas to form using the conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind.

The collages below were created from old book covers, torn, worn and too precious to throw away. Inspired by, the randomness of barges, flotsam & jetsam observed along the river Seine in France.
