more art

by Sayraphim on January 21, 2009

I find lots of things on the ground, mostly it’s buttons, broken jewellery and playing cards. I found a lot of tiny bones recently when I was at the beach and wandering through a garden and I wanted to make something out of them.

So this is my Missing Presumed Art series.

They’re all tiny, the biggest one is the flower in the middle, and that measures around 20cm. The top is The Caged Bird, the middle is The Flower and the bottom is The Dancer. I love the sepia colouring of the pages (both found books as well, one of which is a Chinese Bible) and the fabrics. I’m big on sepia and memories and haunting images. This is the first time I’ve worked with collage in about 11 years, and I’m really happy with the results.

Thanks Chrisy! I was really fond of these guys. It’s following a theme I’ve been pursuing for years, what happens when the memories fade to sepia stains…
