National Geographic 1956

Vintage magazine covers, acrylic crystals on canvas

76 x 70cm


A collection of original, vintage magazine covers and acrylic crystals 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 iconic magazine covers show their individual history in the marks, tears and worn edges of the paper. The entire 12 issues from 1956 have been utilised: January through to June provide the background images while July through to December provide the raised decorative borders.

The addition of Swarovski crystals in various sizes add a contemporary component.
