We stumbled upon these stunning paintings made with everyday objects, anything of the right size, shape or colour: toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewellery, curtain hooks, springs etc. No colour is added – everything is used exactly ‘as found’.
Jane Perkins, the artist behind these masterpieces, ‘re-makes’ famous works of the Old Masters, like Van Gogh and Monet and gives it a contemporary twist. Result a fun and stunning “Plastic Classics”.
Jane says: I am a ‘re-maker’, taking inspiration from found objects and working them into something new. Although my background is in textiles, I now work predominantly with plastic. I love art with an element of fun and the unexpected, and hope my work will make you smile!
Well it does make us smile.. Enjoy..
