Mari Skarp-Bogli's recent work incorporates raw industrial materials used throughout the building industry. Pine, paper, cardboard, aluminum, steel, copper, brass, industrial abrasives and adhesives are common materials creating mixed media three-dimensional ‘paintings’ that include pure elemental form and detritus.
"During technical production of these raw industrial materials lean manufacturing processes demonstrate complex yet minimalistic creation; utilizing repetition and patterning while seeking to minimize waste and maximize product. I attempt to replicate this process in my work, replacing fast production with slow, manual processes, embracing the element of human touch and the beauty of basic materials; identifying older world concepts quickly being replaced by technology".
