Art Description

Collage: Paper and Found Objects on Canvas.

A collection of original, vintage board game cards and acrylic crystals arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.

These cards have been sourced from an American Monopoly set discovered at a New York flea market. They have been organized into a geometric formation and then raised so as to cast soft shadows on the background canvas.

Corresponding in colour to the front of the property cards, Swarovski crystals have been carefully positioned behind small triangular cut-outs.

Evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, this work presents parts of a board game that has widespread popularity and appeal, spanning many decades. The history of these items is evident in the discoloration, marks and general wear of the paper.
