I love it when something ordinary is transformed into the unexpected. When the simplicity of everyday objects are imbued with a new kind of beauty and meaning, it somehow wakes me up inside. It's an invitation to remember that beauty can in fact be found in the commonplace with the help of a little juxtaposition and attention to detail. And that is exactly what I've stumbled upon with the discovery of a series of art plates entitled "Altered Perspectives."
Marrying two classic Dutch art forms - china and painting - this collection elevates the upcycled china-canvas back to the status of collectible with a unique and entirely original twist.
My favourite in the current series is the grouping above. The texture of the clouds and the water strategically gathers together seemingly disparate plates into a beautiful collection of textural and geometric interest with a classic scene as its focal point.
The subject matter varies from still life to landscapes to marine scenes and portraits, and each collection is entirely original. More groupings in this series can be viewed here.
Wishing you an inspired Monday, filled with moments of recognizing beauty in the everyday.
