Circle 3

Circle 3

Vintage stamps, painted wood on canvas

103 x 103cm


A collection of original, vintage postage stamps and painted wood arranged on canvas with a three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind conservation glass within a dark brown, wooden frame.

Collected from a variety of sources, the circle is made up of hundreds of early to mid 20th century stamps that depict the British monarchs of the time, King George V and King George VI.

Evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, this work references a bygone era when mail was the primary form of correspondence.
