46 Discarded Objects
Mixed Media
Reg. No: P1073
Each of these apparently discarded objects/pieces of rubbish have been lovingly and painstakingly made from another material. A feather is made from papier mache, a leaf is made of newspaper and a nail turns out to be made from a matchstick. The knowledge that the objects are fake, combined with their striking realism, gives this piece its whimsical and disturbing feel. The artist also works producing anatomical models for St Andrews University, Fife.
