In her “Plastic Classics” series, British artist Jane Perkins uses almost anything she can find – buttons, plastic toys, LEGO pieces, etc. – to re-create recognizable iconic paintings like DaVinci’s Mona Lisa and portraits of stars like Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. Although she has her artistic roots in textile work, she works almost exclusively with plastic parts.
Each portrait or “painting” she has created, when inspected close up, reveals a miniature textured world of forgotten knick-knacks, somewhat like an impressionist painting.
