Drawn from the Discarded is a collection of drawing tools predominately constructed from urban waste from Newtown and surrounding suburbs. The intention behind making these tools was initially born as a way to connect with the environment, to find new ways to make marks when drawing and give new life to the discarded.
The story behind Jody Graham’s salvaging behaviour is a creative response to the artist belief system that an excess of new and more can impoverish the human spirit. Attention and care in the arrangement of these implements has been used to assist in elevating their status from waste into art objects.
