Vivid at the Office

Vivid at the Office Vivid at the Office
I have a busy, mornings only, office job at a mining engineering company.

Here I sit, dreaming of the art I would rather be making at home. There is a boring, montone office palette in this environment – grey, dark blue, black, brown. Vivid colours are not professional here. On my desk lies a little block of neon bright post-it notes.

I made this artwork under my desk using media in the office. Black cardboard from a calender on the wall, post-it notes, a correction pen and the punch waste paper. Then I hid the work between other pages to scan and copy it.

Back to work.
