Vintage board game cards, acrylic crystals on canvas

52 x 71cm


A collection of original, vintage board game cards and acrylic crystals arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.

Evoking a sense of nostalgia, these cards are from an American Monopoly set and have been organised into a geometric formation and then raised, casting soft shadows on the background canvas.

Swarovski crystals have been positioned behind small triangular cut-outs and correspond to the colour on the front of the card. The history of these items is evident in the discoloration, marks and general wear of the paper.
