COLLECTED TREASURES BY LISA PARKYN
Created as part of ‘Delving Beneath Series’ – a body of work started during 2020 pandemic lockdown, which has helped me make sense of the shifts going on around the world and reflect on what is meaningful in life.
I tapped into my love for the unique textures that occur in nature, on weathered walls, old billboards and rusting metal – the scars of time, symbolising memories and keepsakes.
Exploring the process of adding and subtracting until a balance is found. Using various methods of layering and piecing together fragments through mixed media and then scraping, sanding and peeling off – metaphorically delving deeper to discover what lies beneath and our hidden strengths.
