This piece took three years to create. I want my painting process to create as little waste as possible, so I started to recycle leftover paint and find a way to use it for more art making. Instead of washing the leftover paint off of my palettes I let them dry and scrape off the paint afterwards. This results in beautiful paint scraps. Each of them a tiny artwork in itself and a memory of each painting I was working on at that time… If I had to guess, there are probably paint scraps in this collage from 300+ artworks. It‘s a diary on a canvas.
