Parachute Jump

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.
