Vintage playing cards, acrylic crystals on canvas

56 x 84cm


A set of vintage playing 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.

The cards have been laid in a grid-like formation and alternate between having the border or central section of the design raised from the background.

Every alternate card features a circle of dusty pink Swarovski crystals laid within the existing pattern. The remaining cards have had their raised centre section turned, just like a handle, counterclockwise.
