Vintage playing cards, acrylic crystals on canvas

54 x 74cm


A collection of original, 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.

This piece consists of playing cards from two separate sets that have been arranged in a grid-like formation and alternate between either having a raised border or being entirely fixed to the canvas with added Swarovski crystals.  

The black and white patterns and use of repetition give a sense of movement when viewed from a distance.
