Seaweed canart

Date: June 2018


Media: metal cutouts on canvas board painted with satin gloss.e

Colours: selection of metal cut from soft drink cans.

Description: first attempt at “can art” using soft drink cans which have great design and colour – in this case an intricate pattern and vivid blue, orange  and yellow colours. In addition it was appealing to reuse an object as raw material which otherwise could be disposed of. These three colours hinted at a  coastal theme hence “Seaweed”. The work was very simple but demonstrated the capability of this technique.

Top tip: if you have a “quirky” idea go for it as you never know! Canart as it is now called has become an important part of my portfolio.l
