works on paper - stitch
In my art-making practice the use of newspaper explores themes of communication, censorship and politics as reported or omitted from the daily ‘news’.
As a material newspaper is used to reference the everyday. Sports, weather, headlines, community events, obituaries,... the daily news. In these times of 'fake news' it is especially important to value and maintain the freedom and impartiality of the press.
