Trashy Faces

Klio

I found these stunning portraits by Arizona artist Sandhi Schimmel Gold who makes her work with a very unique medium. These beautiful faces were put together in mosaic entirely out of daily junk mail deliveries. The results are just stunning.

She explains the concept behind her process: “My work reflects our society’s obsession with beauty through advertising – and the endless images that bombard us daily,” Gold says.”It is a purposeful intermix of images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces – images and text – from advertising that arrives through my mailbox. Assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new image – an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my imagination, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste.”

I picked out some of the film star faces, but you can check out the rest of her work HERE.

If you are ever after a real classic breton shirt, check out: i sea stripes. The owner imports them from the Ukraine, the actual shirts that the military use!! They are reasonably priced and I have bought several. I leave them large and oversized, or do a quick and easy stitch job to slim them down. I really, really recommend them for a wardrobe staple.

I will not be surprised if you’ve already seen this but I liked it so much I had to share it. Danny Roberts made this Elizabeth Taylor tribute for his blog Igor + André. If you haven’t seen it, GO LOOK at it HERE. He makes the most beautiful portraits of bloggers, pop icons and fashion imagery. Take caution, you may waste hours looking through!!
