In some of my current artistic explorations I am focused on my collection of art catalogues. The catalogues are disassembled and pieced together again. Pages painted over, whole catalogues gashed and torn up. Art becomes material, these catalogues’ rearrangement an examination of the influences that shape their distinctive artistic visual realms. The overpaintings exhibited here are part of this eclectic process of appropriation, assimilation and transformation, and hark back to a catalogue of 19th century Japanese painting.
