The works that immediately took my eye were created by one of the collectives members - Chris Meek. This what he has to say about his art [from the JET Art Collective web page]:
"I have been producing and exhibiting my artwork for the past 10 years. I describe my work as panel and paint, as I come from the trade of panel beating. I enjoy working with the uncompromising medium of metal and work intuitively on each piece, letting the qualities of the objects dictate the end result. I describe my scrap yard as an overgrown garden, having an endless supply of discarded materials waiting to be reincarnated into artworks. My ideas come from everyday life, especially the moment . I believe the world should ” make do with what it’s got.” This is my way of making a difference. Reuse, reduce , recycle."
We visited and were made most welcome by Chris who showed us through his workshop and gallery and talked about the creativity that goes into his work. Thanks Chris.
