As a materials-led artist and maker working primarily with found materials, I forage, gather and reuse everything from cardboard to pallets and wooden fruit boxes. I am driven by a desire to celebrate the overlooked, for instance printing the utilitarian symbols I collect from packaging, onto the other materials on which they are commonly printed. My work combines elements of design, paper engineering, fine art and construction, and is made available through limited editions, as well as informal interventions in the urban environment. www.laralunabartley.com
