Abstract

The artwork is a diptych that combines the use of non-traditional materials (offcuts of sign writer's vinyl) and abstract form to evoke a sense of tensions embedded in routines of the everyday. One panel is composed of rigid grid-like pattern, suggesting uniformity and constraint, and the other panel features loose and irregular scissor cuts with craft scissors (pinking sheers). The work embodies a make-do, slightly impoverished aesthetic grounded in both the reclaimed materials and simple hand-made processes used.
