The sweet taste of barcodes
This collage paining continues upon my interest with bar codes as a foundation to work from. There is a kind of spirituality to barcodes, it is part of the fabric of modern society, it is apart of a belief system. For this reason I wanted to use this image as a recognisable symbol almost visible in the background. I then overplayed acrylic paints and other medias ontop to build up a depth, to create a space to enter and contemplate.
I would like the viewer to be pulled in by the detail and signs, hypnotised by curiosity.
