Ugly garbage rendered in oils beautifully framed
“I reframe ugly aspects of our environment, such as industrial sites and electrical substations, into works of art. I am influenced by deconstruction philosophy and as such my work questions what beauty is and what it means to make or own a piece of art.” Robert Stembridge
