Matchbox Series
This series, began in 2013, incorporates collaged matchbox covers with paint and mixed media. These works hope to take the iconography of everyday commercial graphic design and reinterpret this with contemporary colour and composition. As with much of my work I am interested in establishing links with the things we take for granted in our everyday lives; echoes of the past relocated in the present through the imagination. Results can use contrasting or harmonious visual language to give these humble objects a new significance, redefine our preconceptions of them and help us to see them in a new context.
