Dirty containers and old walls contain a world of their own that can be epic in scale. Small as it is, it is usually hidden from our view, but it is there if you look close enough. When you do, some motifs immediately catch your eye as you recognize a familiar concept. But more often less distinguished and seemingly less attractive surfaces, with their complex forms and patterns, produce the most striking images. It’s just a matter of removing the context and replacing it with a new one. This way, partial shots of rusty doors and garbage containers, old walls and cracked tiles, even dirty tires, suddenly become abstractions.
