Occasionally, I have so much random art left over from a project, that all I feel like doing is throwing it away. Quite often, it would be colour or media experimentations, so my feeling is that is really isn’t good enough for anyone’s visual consumption. Then one day, I had an epiphany. I started to cut it all up and create new art from it. Recycling my artwork.
I went through a phase of creating recycled art, and to be honest, it became quite addictive. I also started to photocopy my work, then add more colour on top. I once also went so far as to laminate what I created, then added more art on top, in layers, and then relaminating again. It was fun, and as you might expect, sometimes would lead to the creation of a pile of rubbish – my little nephew (who at the time was about 2) was creating better art!
As always, I love to hear what you think, so please leave me your comments below…look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks. Marc 🙂
