A unique mini decay mixed media painting.
I love rescuing old wallpaper and paint, I obtain pieces from skips, renovation projects and from abandoned/derelict houses. Each piece representing a period of time in that home. The people that lived there, each generation choosing a new design...these tiny fragments holding so many memories. By repurposing these pieces into my art ensures they are forever cherished.
I handmade/painted the piece of rose wallpaper and then distressed it to look old and decayed. All the other pieces are original vintage wallpaper which I rescued from an undisclosed abandoned house. There is a piece of blush emulsion paint as well as a piece of red paper that has been distressed, it resembles a rose petal hidden between the layers of wallpaper. The background is dark grey and heavily textured.
The black box frame measures 12 x 12 x 3.5cm and can also be wall mounted. The painting is continued on the sides of the inner frame too. Each painting has a hand written tag detailing the media used as well as the history to each piece contained in the painting.
