Nothing New? Postage Stamp Collage 

on Canvas Board 18"x24"

 

First exhibited at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery from 10th March to 3rd May 2015, Nothing News? has subsequently visited 5 Regional Galleries across Queensland 

 

Nothing New?' is a collection of artworks, inspired equally by The Queen, Andy Warhol and Anton Chekov, generated by using recycled postage stamps.

 

Collaged together the stamps create portraits of iconic figures from the art world, popular culture, politics and world history.  Each artwork is produced using repetitive blocks of stamps to form the stylised image, each containing  between 2,000 and 4,000 stamps, individually hand cut to shape.

 

Extending the theme of 'Nothing New?', each image is based on a well known image of the iconic figure; the Queens head from the postage stamp, David Bowie from the cover of Aladdin Sane, Barack Obama's 'Victory' poster, Christ's image on the crucifix, Warhol's image of Marilyn Monroe and the iconic photograph of Warhol himself.

 

All of these images have been repeated, reused and recycled over the years but treated in a new way.
