Ever since I was a kid I collected stuff – from the beach, from the bush, and from the dump. I am attracted to the textures, the shapes and the idea that what I use has already had a life and been used by others albeit for very different purposes. The term ‘found art’ describes art created from the undisguised, but often modified, use of objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function.” Source: Wikipeadia I prefer the term Salvage Art. Salvage [n]: the art of saving imperilled property from loss. My first exhibition in 1981 as a founding member of the Taranaki Artists Cooperative [TACO] was assembled from found and recycled materials and so it has continued. I have exhibited regularly ever since and have works in private collections in New Zealand, Australia, the States and the UK.
