Anne Stagg

I work with discarded industrial felt waste as a substrate for some of my recent paintings. I am drawn to the material aesthetically with its fuzzy texture and punched holes, but also because of its accrued history – much of it literally scarred by industrial production. I am interested in moments where something that once had value, or meaning, is lost and found again: discovered anew in a different context. I like that the tactility of the material evokes one response while the mechanical residue of production evokes another.
