In this series I use cardboard packaging to create drawings of imaginary floor plans on paper and card.
Scavenging from my household recycling bin, I open up and draw around boxes that once contained toothpaste, teabags, soap etc. I then add colour to emphasis space, with the white creating a zone of tension inside and in between the colours. In the larger drawings on paper, I use colour pencil and in the smaller pieces on card I use schoolroom poster paint.
The spaces thus created resemble floor plans for buildings, or the outlines of strange objects that have been removed from the scene.The different materials used create different textures – the pencil light and open and the paint thick and dense.
