Art Description

Collage: Paper, Found Objects, Plastic on Canvas.

A collection of original, vintage U.S. postcards and acrylic beads arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.

Collected from multiple sources, the postcards have been arranged to form a geometric pattern. The sunken rectangular centers leave behind raised frames which mirror the frame of the artwork itself.

These hand-drawn images depict day or night versions of the iconic and temporary Chrysler Motors building, constructed for the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933. This fine example of art deco architecture housed exhibitions and was considered to be one of the highlights of the fair.

The addition of white, acrylic beads placed at the top of the buildings complements the design by adding a further three-dimensional ingredient.
