The theme of this series is based on my conviction that in an art practice, no effort is wasted. I believe that when you sit down to create art, one benefits from the process of the practice and creation of art. Out of each art session there is a potentially valuable tangible product and/or by-product created from that session. Even if the product created from the session is an artwork that is not to your liking, there may be use for it - you may choose to display it in a different or more appropriate manner suited to the piece or repurpose the art in some way to breathe new life into it. If your art session outputs by-products like a bunch of small studies, practice sheets, paper that was used as a paint/ink blotter, or dried up acrylic paint blobs/skins, for example, there will most likely be a use for them as well. One of the uses from a not-so-great painting or the aforementioned by-products is to recreate whole new artworks from them.
No Art Wasted is a series of artworks made from rejected paintings and by-products from my own art practice. The paintings and by-products have been repurposed and reassembled to create new pieces fit for display. This series conveys that art can be made even from the most humble blobs of paint, discarded botter papers or from paintings we initially feel are only fit for the trash bin.
