Through my body of work I have explored issues and ideas regarding the role of small businesses in connecting and extending cultural groups and customs, as well as the challenges they face in a market dominated by the major corporations. I was inspired to investigate these concepts due to Australia’s vast multicultural environment as well as contemporary concerns regarding the loss of culture due to mass consumerism. I used black and white charcoal on paper to present my concepts, placing an emphasis on dark tones to represent the sombre nature of the lives of small business owners.
