    Art Description:

    Ready to hang analogue cut and paste textile collage on canvas. I emphasize “analogue” to reinforce that this is a hand made assemblage of bits and scraps and material fetished and fussed over with sticky fingers and trays of goop and a fabulous scrapheap of remnants littering the studio tables and floor. Its physical work. Its millinery; the fabric and scissor cuts have a voice; a deciding formal vote. Square format. Geometric patterns assimilate with floral repetition. Arabesque open forms stair step up the composition bridging noisy clustered imagery with expanses of unbroken passages of pink, green and blue. Oil paint drips and splatters and soft pastel scrawls evince the hand at work in an otherwise printed and textiled multiverse and ode to spring. “sweet spring is your time is my time is our time for springtime is lovetime and viva sweet love” e.e. cummings.

    Medium Used:Analogue cut & paste fabric and paper collage with oil and acrylic paint

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
