Original mixed media collage in acrylic and paper on paper.
"The Aesthetic qualities in my work are heavily influenced by childhood observation and everyday visual sources such as wallpaper, book covers, shopping lists and children’s drawings. The two come together in awkward handcrafted tension that has an unsophisticated relevance to the reality of the lives we live today. DISCO is a nod towards a collective nostalgia from 80s Britian."
