Gone are the days of tin openers! I have a number of cans in my larder, and I noticed that the ring pull tops are of a different design – not as universal as one might think. That was my starting point. Looking to find a background or sympathetic situation, I came across a photo I took of my metallic kitchen sink, that I had rejected for a previous collage. I had smeared cooking oil in the basin to create water globules. To emulate the theme, I photographed the tops of the cans separately, following the same process, and then reduced their opacity to reveal the sink and slightly overlapping the cans.
