To The Little Red School House

Vintage postcards on canvas

58 x 78cm


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.

Produced in the 1930’s and 40’s and collected from a variety of sources, these postcards have been placed in a grid-like pattern. They feature sunken centres that leave behind raised frames mirroring the frame of the artwork itself.

The arrangement forms a narrative journey through natural settings to the red school house featured prominently in the second column. Curved roads in the outer columns brings the eye of the viewer towards the central images.
