Art Description

Collage: Paper and Found Objects on Canvas.

A collection of original, vintage U.S. postcards arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The items are mounted behind glass within a lime waxed, wooden frame and are part of a small series.

The geometric arrangement and bold, circular shapes create contrast with the organic form of the waterfalls. Sourced from flea markets in New York and Tel Aviv, these postcards depict images of Niagara Falls at night illuminated by multi-colored lights projected onto the falling water.

Originally black and white photos taken in the 1930’s, these images were then hand-tinted before being printed for the tourism market.
