Recycled Paper

In 1996, after graduation from the former Alberta College of Art, I started using shred product of various types into my work, from confidential material salvaged from the recycling bin of an office, shredded personal files, $2 bills obtained from the Government of Canada, newspapers, fictional novels, yard waste, etc.

What I found most fascinating was in the various ways the materials could be manipulated, depending on how the paper materials were shredded and/or layered onto a surface. These are samples of the types of work I produced during the post grad time period, having recently revisited with the purging of my mother and grandmother’s estates.

These works were exhibited in galleries across Canada at the time of production, and unfortunately, I do not have very thorough documentation and many pieces are in private collections.
