RELEVANCE OF MY STYLE
The process is actually initiated by the desire to create a painting that demands attention and has a dynamic appearance. With this approach, I maintain textural effects and geometric shapes as a focal point with recycled waste sawdust and glue as a binder.
However, the relevance of the style is to manage sawdust from saw millers and add value to it so as to enable it to contribute to environmental sustainability, in view of the advocacy against global climate change, due to the way it is being burned to ashes in most timber sawmills. One may ask-How do we replace the burning of waste sawdust with recycling to painting and equally save the environment? This very question, therefore, gave root to this style of my painting.
Notwithstanding, this approach to painting is my own unique way of contributing to the environmental sustainability through reduction of pollution and health problems arising from sawdust combustion, through creative means of recycling the waste sawdust into painting. This will reduce greenhouse gas emissions while enhancing the quality of life and public health of the people.
