Kitchen Art 8, "Ecuador"
Stickers on Polythene, H14" x W11" Kitchen Art is an ongoing series of sticker collages that I began many years ago. They are a personal diary -each having a theme or story- based on products I've consumed, museums I've visited, and other sticky labels that make their way into my life. Each piece is named after one of the labels within the piece. Through the activity of collecting, grouping, and arranging this material, I sensitize myself to overlooked and discarded details of everyday life and to the patterns of my consumption. The title Kitchen Art suggests a domestic domain as well as the kitsch aspect of sticker designs and messages.
