Bright Everyday

This work combined a series of watercolour paintings on packing paper with curved rod sculptures. In creating the paintings, I was inspired by a shopping cart that I had found washed up in the shore and taken to my studio. I was thinking about accumulation and disintegration. The packing paper I painted on was used by a previous resident to dry seaweed, and so was already mottled when I found it. Painting became a daily meditation, accumulating colour on both sides of the paper and letting the light shine through. The rods were similarly assemblages of material held together and balanced in space. Separate they were identifiable, but together they became a jumble of colour and texture.
