This is a new series of small artworks that I have made on repurposed VCR tapes. All began with a poured acrylic painting, embellished with flowers, decorative papers, and other small items to give them sparkle and dimension. They were all sealed with a coat of crystal resin to add depth.
I chose a romantic theme for this series – flowers and little objects that remind me of romantic events. There’s a bit of sparkle and I think all of them are quite elegant.
I like the size of the work because they fit into almost any space – and they can conceal small mementos inside. I really dream of living in a tiny house, so I’m inspired by the thought of giving my art a dual purpose – not only does it look lovely hanging on a wall, but the interior of the box can hold little things that are important to the owner. I love that idea – it’s minimalism with a sentimental twist.
All of my small cases are available in my Etsy shop.
