The mobile mast paintings are made from painted magnetic sheet on steel surfaces, echoing the satisfying technique of cut paper collage but with more industrial materials. The series focuses on these eerie sculptural forms that perch like modern gargoyles upon the rooftops, or thrust up unnaturally in open spaces. In some areas brazenly conspicuous with little thought given to local residents and in other wealthier parts of town, comedically yet grossly disguised as trees. These masts hold the power connect us digitally, pinpoint us physically and potentially harm our body and mind. Bring on 5G!
