This work combines objects with paint and colour, exploring their transformation into a composition. The objects I used were unwanted, broken or disposable. They were given a new function, and the lifetime of very throwaway items was extended. The use of objects gives the work some familiarity, and can resonate differently with each viewer. I often painted directly onto the objects, which abstracted them or removed them from their original function. Colour was used to unite a collection of items, or create a connection between different items throughout a piece.
