We have thousands of plastic toys and paraphernalia in our home which provided inspiration for this piece. We did a clean out. I salvaged broken toys and plastic trays. The plastic lego and trays were very interesting as they have a myriad of patterns. I thought about pouring acrylic paint into these and using them as a mould.
Many of the particles (leaves) you see in these pieces are the result of dried paint peeled from Lego moulds. At other stages in the piece I used the original Lego or salvaged plastic piece. I also baked paint in my oven. Over two months the painting emerged as these complex abstract pieces began to mirror our consumerist twenty first century society.
