Vintage board game cards, acrylic crystals on canvas
45 x 67cm
A collection of original, vintage board game cards and acrylic crystals arranged on painted canvas with a three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.
Arranged in a grid-like formation, these cards are from a mid-century British board game. The addition of Swarovski crystals in each corner provides a contemporary component and shimmering effect. Soft shadows are cast below the raised items.
The individual history of this board game is evident in the marks, tears and worn edges of the materials.
