Bar Codes. The fabric of society! A new painting in the making.

Sorry I painted over someones painting! Don't worry it's not an original, I think its one of those machine made paintings. I picked this one up from a local charity shop, its amazing what you can find in these places!

Cutting out paper bar codes and layering them together onto canvas. 

Now you see it and now you kind of don't. I then applied a glossy white paint over the top of the bar collage. 

I am continuing to work within the theme of barcodes, there is something that keeps pulling me back to them. I guess it's because of its ever functional presence in modern day society, its association to the exchange of products, storage of information. For me this represents the society we live in and it also gets me thinking about my place and value within society. There are a lot of associations.
