Art Description

Collage: Paper and Found Objects on Canvas.

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

Featuring hand drawn images of birds, these cards were produced by the Brooke Bond Tea Company in the 1960’s where they would have been individually collected from boxes of tea in an attempt to complete the set.

These particular cards have been gathered from a variety of sources and brought together to create a vibrant, repetitious pattern. The Swarovski crystals act as new eyes for the birds, bringing them to life when catching the light.

This style of arrangement draws inspiration from complete sets of framed collecting cards found on walls adorning many traditional English pubs.
