The Art of Appropriation

Artist David Le Fleming uses found objects such as old advertising tin cans and metal scraps as his canvas. David explains, "I choose to work on pre-existing materials because it allows me to stage a reaction to the object as well as project an idea. Objects that have exisited for specific purposes have their own story to tell and make available contexts that are hard to attain otherwise. Also I like the aesthetic of aged metal, theres something there that appeals to me greatly."
