One man's rubbish ....

This week's IAE team challenge theme is "transformation".

This is a piece that I've been working on to submit for an exhibition called "Revive, Revolve, Re-love".

I've used various found (and rescued-from-going-in-the-bin!) objects, including a rusty key, a hair clip, buttons, pages from an old telephone book, old jigsaw pieces and clock parts.

This canvas is still a work in progress - I want to do a bit more on it yet - but I thought it would be ideal for the "transformation" theme - transforming rubbish into art!

  8. Wow this one is my new favorite of all your work- I love how it maintains your regular style but really speaks on it's own as well. Gorgeous how each bit of rubbish looks wonderful by itself but when you put them all together you have such a powerful piece of art- I LOVE it!
