Old shelving panels found on the street.

Many of the objects I paint on are found, usually items that are discarded and dumped on the street.  I believe much of what we need is being thrown away and that it is not necessary to alway buy things from new.  My parents were great skip scavengers and I am sure I inherited this nature of always being aware and inquisitive of piles of personal abandonment.  Although in their day the rubbish that was discarded was of a far higher quality  than it is today, despite this I often find objects of use or items lend themselves to the function of the art canvas.  This series were painted on discarded shelving panels found in the rubbish in Kings Cross near my studio.
