These paintings are from 2009 and are a continued response to my local environment.
The 3 paintings are all using an image of an assemblage of found plastic objects worked into the background with either portraiture, still-life or landscape elements incorporated. The images of the assemblages of the found plastics, I worked into the background of the canvas, before I developed the foreground, these found plastic object images have the effect of very much livening up the surface, as well as providing another personalised and conscious link between the found object works and my recent paintings.
