Painting: Oil, Plastic, Found Objects, Enamel on Plastic.
What does it look like when that which protects us breaks down? This is one of a series of works using decomposed pedestrian protection tape. I found the barricading material woven into the grass at one of my kids' rugby fields. I used plaster to attach it to the canvas and then enamel and oil paint to complete the work. I love the way the originally uniform pattern of the material has been warped, revealing the flaws in its intention - to provide protection. There's honesty in its fallibility. The surface of the work is textured and irregular, extending a maximum of 2cm in relief in places.
