Collage: Paper, Found Objects on Canvas.
A collection of original, vintage board game cards arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.
These cards have all been individually sourced from British Monopoly sets ranging from the 1930’s through to the early 1960’s. They have been organized into a geometric formation with raised squares that complement the surrounding rectangular shapes.
The variations in colour tones between the cards indicate the possibility of differing ink suppliers and manufacturing processes throughout the years of production.
Evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, this work presents parts of a board game that has widespread popularity and appeal, spanning many decades. The journey of each individual card is evident in the discoloration, marks and general wear of the paper.
