These works are created on old art prints, photos and original paintings from second hand stores. Most were beaten up and faded and I wanted to breath new life into them. Using lines, dots and shapes I take the viewers eye around the compositional structure intended by the original artist and use colour to re train the eye to see the subtle hues of colour still remaining in the old artprint. Taking something quite old, giving it a new twist and bringing it into the 23rd century.
