Garbage in

A not so little canvas, 70cm x 50cm I think.   The piece that is for the office, the MD has not seen it yet but at work today it was well received.

The business recycles plastic, all those plastic bottles and things you put into your recycling bin and the bin itself.   We are one of the places it goes to, where it gets broken down into small pieces or powder to be used all over again.    Some of those 'chips' and also some of the waste from the Lab have been included on this canvas.   I also grabbed a couple of old computers from there recently all those yummy computer thingies to play with.   A couple of circuit boards and a cable have also been incorporated here.

A big white canvas once covered with blue GM and CS Spray became easier to work on.  Pastel sticks, acrylic paint, alcohol ink, glue, Viva Craco and Viva Ferro have all been used well it is mixed media!
