Wednesday Specials has many layers and colours under what you see here, and they all influence this final image.

Description

Wednesday Specials is one of a series of small paintings created in my studio with collage elements found in my studio. How can I ‘find’ things in my studio? I can because of the history of the space, a former workshop and store room under my childhood beachside holiday house. My parents retired here and when I moved in the storeroom had also accumulated stuff from other family members as well.

There was a lot to clear out before I could call it my studio. Sorting through eons of papers I found and collected their notebooks, pamphlets, magazines, books and documents. These papers have been a rich source of both inspiration and memory. The retro colours of this series of paintings was led by the papers themselves.
