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 world stamps have been grouped into a green, brown and orange colour palette forming the shape of a globe. With their own individual histories, they span a time period of approximately one hundred years. The piece is named Harvest inspired by the autumnal colours of North America.
Evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, this work references a bygone era when mail was the primary form of correspondence.
