Photo Description:
I wanted to look at materials and their relationships I also wanted to use non art specific materials. Materials that are accessible such as emulsion, washing powder, bleaches, home resins - all domestic, all brought from pound shops. I reused found canvas which meant that there was a absence of the previous piece and an absence of colour and an absence of title. The changing over time was an ongoing process and whilst it dried it bubbled new pores happened and bits sunk and some sections rose up it continues to change creating this interesting relationship and interaction. Its tactile process of making and the visual response becomes the artefact to a process which is the art.
