Vintage postcards on canvas
45 x 56cm
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 white, wooden frame.
Collected from multiple sources, the postcards have been arranged to form a geometric pattern, half of which have been placed upside-down to create a mirroring effect. The sunken rectangular centres leave behind raised frames which reflect the frame of the artwork itself.
The hand-drawn illustrations depict the iconic Parachute Jump, designed and built for the New York World’s Fair of 1939 and now residing at Coney Island.
