Vintage stamps, painted wood on canvas

103 x 103cm


A collection of original, vintage postage stamps 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, these U.S. stamps have been grouped into a pastel colour palette forming the shape of a globe. All originals from the mid-century era, the stamps are unused apart from one hiding in each hemisphere bearing a postage mark.

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