Recycollages – Junk Transformed
by Susan Wadsworth
3 September – 19 December 2015
With a passion and concern for the environment, Susan Wadsworth is an artist who creates striking and playful mixed media assemblages using the everyday debris of our throw-away society, such as plastic toys, bottle tops, old comics, drinking straws, clothes pegs, broken jewellery and plastic bags.
Recycollages – Junk Transformed brings together her latest work, created from waste materials and discarded objects from charity shops or car boot sales. These found objects are transformed into formal compositions of three-dimensional artworks, wall hangings and installations, flavoured by urban art, such as graffiti, to offer a fresh perspective on what constitutes contemporary art.
Susan’s work stimulates a debate with strong resonances in contemporary society, by championing a change in how we look at waste: that something good should be made of the things we throw away.
Susan trained as a painter-printmaker at Newcastle Polytechnic and has a B.A. (Hons) degree in Fine Art. She creates her works full-time from her London studio.
