The Alchemy of Found Object Assemblage Art
It’s storytelling with a twist - Peta Lloyd’s art features collections of discarded items, combined to create assemblage art that now tells new and old stories, putting a beautiful new take on the phrase “one man’s trash is another’s treasure”. In this episode we hear all about Peta’s exciting creative processes and the mediums she uses.
As a self-confessed bricoleur (one who creates from a diverse range of available things), Peta Lloyd’s work has inspired others to take on a similar craft of exploration and discovery. Originally from Mildura, Victoria, Peta is now a Central Queensland local who has exhibited widely around the state and the country.
