While cutting up expired credit cards a thought came to Gary's mind, why not draw on them instead. What would be a more meaningful symbol than this 2 x 3 inch piece of plastic that allows us all to exchange income for goods and services? What a perfect format to deface and morph into art!
As with any new medium, an artist has to figure ways to express ideas and feelings while tackling problems inherent in the "found or unusual" material. My paintings follow a similar process of sketching, selecting and developing the forms while deciding on the final piece's size and materials needed for the completion. I always allow room for my creative process to make changes from my initial concept to the piece's final presentation.
