Collage: Rip it up

I have been reviewing old work on paper and finding new directions through ripping it up and starting again - literally! 

Collage is certainly cathartic - you get to reasses and destroy works that weren't really working -  and it's also a refreshingly quick way to work as you can try many different options without committing yourself to a final outcome (unlike painting).

Here are some new works #rehashed.  Create and destroy: the key to creativity?
