Greetings from Atlanta
Vintage postcards on canvas
61 x 76cm
A collection of original, vintage U.S. postcards arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a grey, wooden frame.
Produced in the 1930’s and 40’s, these postcards have been collected from a variety of sources and then arranged to form a geometric pattern. Sunken rectangular centres leave behind raised frames which reflect the frame of the artwork itself.
The repeated hand-drawn illustrations depict iconic buildings in the city of Atlanta, such as the State Capitol and City Hall, which still stand today.
