The Shape of the Universe

Collage by Michael Poulton. I’ve always loved working with antiquarian material, some of it quite rare and valuable in its own right. I am fundamentally a conserver by nature and nobody loves a beautiful old map or hand written manuscript more than me. In my collage and mixed media work I destroy these things I love and reconfigure them. Someone once asked why I didn’t just make a copy and use that, but that would be cheating to me. Creation, destruction, creation, Its like a wheel isn’t it? And wheels can take you somewhere.
