Richard Pearse is an artist from New Zealand who basically paints with wood-chippings. That makes it sound crappy but it's incredible the way he finds all these scraps of wood, all different colours, textures, sizes, he cuts them up so they're all the exact right size and slots them into place to create the beautiful patterns that are almost tribal. It reminds me of computer glitches or collages, I think the use of everyday materials and how all the imperfections are what make his works so interesting. It reminds me that we really can't use the excuse of 'I'm too broke to buy materials' stop us from creating something.
