The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things

In the Summer of 2013 I went to a fascinating exhibition of Kurt Schwitters’ work at Tate Britain. I went on the off chance and was bowled over by his use of collage and other mixed media. After the exhibition I headed off to join some friends for a drink. I was really looking forward to our get together, and inspired by my trip to the exhibition I bought a glue stick and some scissors and made this collage, titled ‘The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things’ while I waited for my friends to arrive. We ended up having a great fun evening in London and this small collage serves as a powerful memory to me of the importance of friendship.
