“I often ask myself why I paint on plastic, it’s dumb, has a crease like a builders arse and is very problematic but I am able to push my paintings much further on it for example I can completely remove paint from the surface of the painting, I can paint on both sides obtaining a number of different finishes, I can leave parts of the surface transparent, leave paint hanging half on half off and overall I just love the ridiculousness of putting so much work onto something that has no obvious traditional value.”    (Tina Jenkins)
