Value of Trash

Rocky Mountain Pizza Boxes, acrylic, conté, sharpie, charcoal, water-based printing ink

What makes a painting valuable? What is a piece of art worth? As I continue to explore my artist statement, I am drawn to experimenting on different surfaces. So far, my absolute favourite is cardboard. It is so sturdy, but flexible at the same time. These three samples are all painted on the back of recycled pizza boxes – but could you tell before I told you?
