Flood-Molyneux uses a range of mixed media which includes spray paint, oil paint, acrylics, and anything that can make a dynamic mark. The collage material used in this work comes from vintage comic books, old movie posters, and magazines from the 70’s. They use imagery that they feel symbolises events that have happen in their life and compliments this with bold abstraction as an expression of emotions.
