Description

One-off hand-stitched collage, with free UK delivery.

It is not a print or copy, it is the original piece, making it unique. Not another the same.

Hand-sewn from junk mail, vintage postcards and worn-out library books. Everything used in its making was destined for the bin.

Each of the sixteen squares has been hand-sewn and depicts so-called 'Men's Stuff'. You can see caravans (postcard from 1968), a city gent (1984), Silverstone (1962), a fireman (1988), John Wayne (1958), Buzz Aldrin (1985), a man looking at his bald patch (1964), a fry-up (1975), a pint, cricket (1988), builders (1979), a watch (1978), a DIY-er (1966), boat enthusiasts (1968), a tie and Tony Curtis dressed as a woman.

It measures 21cms x 21cms, not including the border, which you can trim to your desired size.

This listing does not include the frame or mount.

Please note, if you live outside the EU you are responsible for paying import duties or taxes, in accordance with your country's customs laws.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give me a shout.

Thank you,
Alison

Inspiration

It gives me a kick to make art out of things others discard. Not to mention being very eco-friendly. All of the images I have used here were picked from the bins of London's museums, art galleries, shops and theatres

I absolutely never print anything. My materials have already been printed by someone else, and then thrown away.

Further information about the making of this piece can be found on my blog alisonsye.wordpress.com/2016/04/01/mens-stuff-patchwork/ or by searching the Instagram hashtag AlisonSye799

£5 from this sale will go to Arts Emergency. This is a small London based charity aiming to ensure university doors are kept open for those most able to benefit from, but least able to pay for education.

*To avoid fading the newsprint keep out of direct sunlight. If framing use UV protection or museum glass.
