Peter McFarlane‘s artistic vision is a nice treat this morning.
It came to the RA via a site called Visual News who’s managing editor Benjamin Starr has the best bio we’ve read in a while.
Much of McFarlane’s material comes from dumpster diving, an activity which helps to keep him humble: “I have found there’s nothing like garbage picking to ward off the glorification of middle class ideals.” We like that. Considering there’s far more than scrap metal floating around, he’s also worked with sculpting and collaging discarded circuit boards, as well as drawing aspects of industrial society.
