“People are sometimes confused as to if the pieces are paintings or not. 

In actuality the pieces are collages that are composed from fragments of destroyed paintings. 
My work is largely about moving away from ones emotional attachment to physical objects and finding beauty and order in chaos. This directly filters down into my production process which first involves the creation of paintings and then the destruction and tearing up of the work. The resulting mess of “broken” pieces are then sorted through, categorized by size and color and reassembled (most often with tweezers) into the finished work you will see on the site.”www.trystanbates.com
