Abstract Collage 1

April 2019

H 34 cm x W 44 cm

Spray paint on paper




This was an unintentional piece that started life as work in the style of Mondrian using spray paint.

This did not work out so the piece was scrapped. However some old business cards used to blank off areas not to be sprayed had some fascinating shapes and colours.

It seemed a shame to discard these so I played around with them and came up with a collage after trying several combinations.

Self-satisfaction score: 6/10 it is satisfying to produce a piece of work from what otherwise would be a failure but no credit came be claimed for the idea or execution other than spotting the potential use.

Lesson learnt: sometimes can art be better by accident rather than by  design?
