Optomistic Art!

My daughter is busy finishing off her Final Art Piece for her Last Year at School! It is an Interactive Work of Art. Thanks to her I have learnt about this artform and come to recognise and enjoy it!

Something else I have enjoyed lately is the work of Jean Shin [via Caravan of Curiosities]. She prolifically creates beautiful works from cast off objects, giving them new life and showing off their beauty in a different way!
How many times have I thrown away a broken umbrella in frustration? Jean's work shows me I should have been collecting them instead!
I love the art of clothing hanging as decor objects! Jean deconstructed this clothing and left only the seams!

She used some of her own clothing to produce these Collograph Prints
Visit her sight and take and take a enlightening tour of her work!
