Found Art: Eggs

£2,500.00
Size: 85 x 1218cm

Found Art: Eggs reflects Blake’s admiration for the beautiful illustration in natural history encyclopaedia’s of the nineteenth century, this page showing the diversity of egg-types in nature is a perfect example of this beauty. Blake collects such books as part of his collection of printed materials and searches through them for inspiration as well as for images to use in his collage work. The key tenet of the Found Art series is to enlarge non-art objects and images to allow the viewer to see them in a new light. The enlargement of this page allows us to see every detail and sheen of texture of the eggs depicted, to see the page takes on an almost abstract quality, concerned with pattern colour and texture. The scientific layout of these specimens with their labelling etc. would hold great appeal to the collecting instinct of the artist.
