Rejectamental

Bio

I am Rejectamental, a UK-based self-taught artist working with recycled materials and found objects to create mixed-media artworks.I practice 'urban archaeology' and can often be found scouring the local streets for crushed tin cans, rusty metal, weathered wood and shiny objects.I like to create narratives with my work, whether exploring the darker side of folk and fairy tales or my own subconscious.My art is also a means of therapy, allowing me to confront my mental illness and express my thoughts and ideas in a constructive way.Recently, I have begun exploring themes of identity, mortality, dreams, and my own memories and mental health. I hope to encourage dialogues and discussions about these subjects through my art.I am mostly self-taught, having found the academic approach to be counter-intuitive to my own ideas and methods.My influences include World folk and fairy tales, Joseph Cornell, religious kitsch, Victorian photography, dream imagery, Outsider Art, psychology and psychoanalysis.
