Trashy Faces

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.

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 + AndrĂ©. 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!!

Marilyn Monroe

The sun is still shining down my corner of the planet, and for most of you it’s coming out in full swing. Take my advice, don’t miss your chance to skip to the beach! Mine was short lived this year, and I’m pining for the sun and sand. Sympathise with me as I mourn my missed chance over these vintage starlets soaking up the sun.
