Optical science would force us to only classify the color pink simply as minus green, pink exists in a gap in the color wheel. A space that is occupied by gamma and radio rays, among other unseeable things. Pink is really only the absence of green and we technically shouldn't be able to see it. Left out of the visible spectrum and neither a particle nor a wave, our eyes miraculously invent pink to fill the gap. As a collage artist I approach my artworks in a painterly manner. I wished to examine the schism of these two very conflicting colors and collage as many greens and pinks as possible. During this process I was able to see the merger of color invented by my mind and hands alike. This exploration helped me to consider concepts on "nature" and ways of seeing. The abstract result is what I titled "Artificial Authenticity" Order the book here : http://www.blurb.com/b/7355151-collage-collective-co-green

"Two artists in particular stood out for us. Like most contemporary artists, they are distinguished by not only the visual imagery they create, but also the process they undergo in creating them- Bradley Foisset and Teressa Lim. The best way to describe Bradley James Foisset small formats works is as postcards from some post apocalyptic industrial urban hell. His process consists of found imagery of urban and industrial artefacts from old magazines, precisely cut out in a process akin to drawing with an x-acto knife. The images are layered on a flat plane with no sense of perspective- a technique similar to Persian and Indian minatures. This collage is then layered with resin and random splashes of paint. The result is a luminous, smouldering work, where continuous scrutiny yeilds multiple layers of meaning and depth-awe of a village boy on confronting the city; artist as creator and destroyer"- Myarttracker, Singapore 2013 (See "Caveman's Valentine")
It is with great pleasure to present a series of 10 collages alongside song amazing artists at the Singapore F1 pit. Booth 3P-09.
