The Mask Collage Series has its origin in a studio flood. Several large paintings being damaged. While storing the damaged canvases the colour, texture and vibrancy of the paintings inspired me to use them to create new work, thus the collage series evolved. The faces are not worked over, or painted on, rather cut directly from the original canvas, building textural layers of colour and form, giving the series its unique quality.
The exhibition is open until December 17.
