Billboards

Billboard, Melbourne.

Billboard detail.
Found art, inner-city Melbourne. The combined effects of natural weathering, and the removal and reapplication of advertising posters, created surface qualities on this billboard that might be found in an artist's collage. Its random beauty, advocates risk taking and accident causing situations in studio work over prescriptive ideas. Whether I would appreciate such billboards without an awareness of artists including Kurt Schwitters and Robert Rauschenberg, is a matter to consider.
