In a world overloaded with waste products, we are constantly reminded of the importance of recycling wherever possible. In April 2019 I took part in a month-long arts residency in Venice – a city that has been recycling its very fabric for over 1000 years.
Everything is patched up a million times over, but somehow this adds to the beauty of this old lady, Venice. Even the graffiti - which many see as a scourge – often seem to be added with love. I included them, and other images and patterns I saw in Venice, in works created on various types of used packaging cardboard, a material that is sent for recycling (or the landfill) in vast quantities. A number of the works also include brick debris fallen from Venetian buildings.
