Letter
A Letter-This piece leverages an old found personal letter. The piece attempts to capture the essence of the hand-written words into textures for keep and preserve.
I can see you, but can you see me..
Based on a beautiful found portrait photograph with a playful hand-written note – ‘I can see you but can you see me?’ on the back. The picture and the hand written note complement each other strikingly, while the captured moment can have several interpretations.
The Red Bus
London Bus from a found postcard
