Womblesitos series

This series is a homage to Wombles which I relate to as genuine caretakers of the environment.  The works use dried paint from old paintings that I have collected for seven years to give more depth and meaning through countless hours integrating materials from many places.  

 

Across all areas of production it is increasingly urgent to consider the environmental impact of materials.  Artists must take the lifecycle of their materials into account, making their art with an eye towards sustainability and protecting the natural world.

 

Whilst this is not self-portrait, Orinoco Womble has a special personality that fits with my principles and the way I am as an artist.  We both collect things (sometimes by accident). We are lazy, relaxed, funny, spontaneous and genuine. And of course, Orinoco is the name of a river in Colombia.
