Dont know what to do with your junk mail? I found this last night and my goodness they are just beautiful and shows that beauty is definately all around us you just need to look through a different set of eyes. I was on my way to take all my junk mail to the recycle bin but I got distracted when I saw my computer and decided to surf the net and found this work from a tweet so the junk mail is not in the bin and I think I might give this a go when I have some spare time.
Sandhi Schimmel Gold the artist quotes:
“My work reflects our society’s obsession with beauty through advertising – and the endless images that bombard us daily. It is a purposeful intermix of images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces – images and text – from advertising that arrives through my mailbox. Assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new image – an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my imagination, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste.”
