Stunning Portraits Made of Hundreds of Found Objects by Jane Perkins
Call herself “re-maker”, UK-based artist Jane Perkins takes inspiration from found objects and working them into something new. In her “Plastic Classics”, she successfully re-create recognizable iconic paintings like DaVinci’s Mona Lisa and portraits of stars like Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela with those neglected itmes such as buttons, toys, shells, beads, jewelry, LEGO pieces, etc. As Jane mentioned, she use anything of the right size, shape or colour to create those portraits – no colour is added, everything is used exactly ‘as found’! Her work keeps your eyes attached from a distance view and when you go closer, a miniature textured world of forgotten knick-knacks is waiting for you to explore.
