Art Description

Collage: Paper and Found Objects on Canvas.

A collection of original, vintage booklet covers arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.

These covers are from booklets produced in the 1960’s by the Brooke Bond Tea Company. Cards featuring images of British wild flowers would be collected one by one from boxes of tea and then glued inside the booklet.

The individual history of each cover is evident in the marks, creases and worn edges of the paper and the general aesthetic of the illustrations is typical of mid-century graphic design.

The repeated images create a colorful floral pattern whilst the raised rectangular columns bring contrast to the surrounding organic shapes.
