The Harvesters - Repurposed Wall Art created from an Antique Book

Details

I created "The Harvesters" using "waste" materials, featuring beautiful pages from late 1800s copy Scribner's Monthly.

When I was gifted this old and sadly damaged copy of Scribner's Monthly, I fell in love with the book. It was a bound collection of stories and illustrations of the time, that had been published in the literary periodical. I found myself reading the words and was fascinated by the perspectives of the time, but it was artwork that mesmerized me, and that served as both inspiration to create this one of kind piece of collaged, antique art called "The Harvesters."

It is my respect for the Earth, mama Gaia, that guided my creation of "The Harvesters." Re-cycling and up-cycling is at the heart of it making. When I can make choices and take actions that prevent such items as an old and damaged book like this one from ending up in our landfills, it's not only a noble effort to me, but it is as act of healing, as well as a creative solution and expression. To me it is yet one more form of Medicine. Medicine that offers critical thinking and creative doing and that breathes new life into something that no longer serves its original purpose.

Layers of corrugated cardboard create the dimensional substrates for this piece. They are collaged with the printed pages from the same Scribner's Monthly book. The felt I used to add contrast and to frame the wonderful illustration is made from recycled plastic bottles. And, of course, the stunning illustration of "The Harvesters" finishes it all of at the focal point of beauty and meaning. The Piece is finished with an archival quality gel medium to preserve and protect the image.

"The Harvesters" measures approximately 7.75-inches by 5.75-inches and is ready to hang from a well secured sawtooth hanger on the back of the piece.

The work is made with love and is signed on the back.

Peace.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

This is a basic mantra of mine. It is a mantra that evokes nurturance and sustainability. It is a mantra that, when put into action, supports Nature and Life as a whole.

This is why I look at "waste" and ask, "how may I give it new Life?"

This is what these pieces of up-cycled art reflect for me. And, I hope, for you.

Peace.

Materials Used

cardboard, book pages, gel medium, recycled plastic felt, craft glue, sawtooth hanger, and love.

What absolute beauties the two items I ordered are! I think I could spend hours looking at all the sublime colors in the spirit cord. Already have it hanging next to my computer where the good mojo is already emanating. The ginkgo card is beautiful beyond belief. You can see the incredible attention to detail and the love that went into creating it. Thank you, Rose. Knew I would love these but didn't realize how much. Can't wait to frame the ginkgo card.
