Cut-Ups

These artworks are originally abstract drawings created with pen and acrylic ink techniques on paper. I then cut up the image into 1cm wide strips and re-assemble randomly, fixing onto plywood panels to create a completely new image. This is an ongoing series.

The technique of cutting up images and re-assembling has been used by artists over the decades, in particular the Dadaists of the 1920s. This technique was popularized in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs in his poetry, and has since been used in a wide variety of contexts.
