Recycled Art by Jane Perkins
UK-based artist Jane Perkins obtains her inspiration in found objects. She uses anything from toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry etc. as material for her re-interpreted contemporary art. Perkins states that she doesn’t add any color, her work comes out of spontaneously placed small pieces of right size and shape.
Inspired by impressionist artist and famous portraits, Perkins achieves a mesmerizing effect in her creations. Her work keeps your eyes attached from a distance view and a close-up as well. So many interesting small pieces perfectly arranged to masterpieces.
"I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can."
" If you read with your eyes shut you’re likely to find that the place where you’re going is far, far behind, so…that’s why I tell you to keep your eyes wide. Keep them wide open…at least on one side "
