In this final image, which I've entitled Happy Trash, I see a smiley face. It says even though I am in this awful place of not be wanted anymore, I can still smile and find meaning and joy. I will not let the environment dictate how I feel... For me that is an amazing attitude and one that I often lack :(


Can you guess what the original image was?


Maybe it was a kitchen bin, an industrial bin outside a shop, the household waste site bin, an office bin... what do you think?

Note: My art is made by taking a photograph and then distorting it until it gives me an image that is abstract, meaningful and total unrecognisable from the original photograph. The final image is trying to captures a hidden emotion. 


To expand further that thought, we all wear masks. We are traumatised by our own uniqueness. We create a false self that fits into its environment (ie the original image is the false self). If we dig at our mask we uncover the real distorted images that lay beneath. The beautiful true hidden self (ie the final image). So my digtal paintings represent the true self.
