Vintage board game cards on canvas

50 x 75cm


A collection of original, vintage board game cards 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 have been sourced from British Monopoly sets ranging from the 1930’s to the 60’s. Variations in colour tones between the cards indicate differing ink suppliers and manufacturing processes throughout the years of production.

The individual journey and history of each item is evident in the discoloration, marks and general wear of the paper.
