This body of work is an assemblage of paintings made from a collection of discarded old photos and slides, from anonymous sources, of unknown subjects.

The shots are flawed - badly taken or positioned, worn, or with distorted colours and bleached faces.

The collection of photos are categorised - visually linking images, themes and ideas. There is pictorial repetition of subject matter, often of imagery that does no justice to the original - big waves, flowers, small birds, a magnificent sunset. The repetition echoes the mass of visual material that surrounds us.

The images connect us to a universal collective memory and experience. Painting them immortalises the fleeting moment, rendering the subjects universal and eternal - an unforeseen result from the original throwaway snap.
