In Search of Beauty #11

description

The decorative surfaces of my work contain thousands of tiny components. Each incorporates a fragment of information or imagery from mass marketing tools that are re-contextualized to represent personal, domestic and cultural narratives. By repurposing solicitations, security envelopes, and catalogs that are difficult to recycle (because their inks have high concentrations of heavy metals), I create sustainable objects using a repetitive practice mirroring domestic tasks. Shredding these promotional materials breaks down their physical and ascribed composition so I can roll, fold, sew and fabricate the shreds into intimate sculptural reliefs.
