Shabby Art That Falls Apart
is made with cheap materials and objets trouvés
in particular disposables
Thus the unsightly, the squalid, gets a second life
in absurd, vulnerable collages and dark ‘Dirt Drawings’
that reflect on western society
They question the notions of artistic value and beauty
    Click on the thumbnails for recent 3D assemblies.
3D assemblies are made out of 'objets trouvés',
rubbish i found in the streets.
All works are for sale.

'Dirt drawings' are made on scrap paper,
