Two very large oil paintings completed when I was 20 were eventually removed from their stretcher frames, rolled up and stored. Years later I wanted to find a way to enjoy these brightly coloured canvases again without re-stretching and hanging them. Resurrected and repurposed they have been cut into two different strip widths and woven into this container. To adorn the surrounding surface of the container different sized buttons and a webbing of random threads were secured on both the inner and outer areas.
