Recycled Art

Recycling Art, as Therapy.

I began to try my hands at recycling art too.
The great thing about working on recycling materials is that it gives you a sense of possibility that can be more freeing than when you work on sketchbooks and canvases.

You are less afraid to "waste" materials if the result isn't satisfying.

You can "break", "tear" and "scratch" materials which is liberating too.
I went to a furniture shop and they were show casing textiles for sofas which were going to be thrown away... I asked if I could use them. I did these two pieces. The process was very therapeutic and surprising for me.
