lydia ricci (from scraps)

lydiaricci

“From Scraps” … love! This work, by Philadelphia based artist Lydia Ricci, feels like a folded, glued, taped walk down memory lane for me… roller skates, a boombox, and don’t even get me started on that rotary phone {I can almost hear those little rotating ticks now!}. She refers to this series/her work as “from scraps”, and she means it:

PAPER, BOARD, THE BACK SIDE OF ANYTHING, GLUE, HOT GLUE, TAPE, STAPLES AND WHAT WAS ALMOST THROWN AWAY.

Phew! Thank goodness none of those bits n pieces made it into the trash!

    I love this post! It came at the perfect time! I am so excited to show my students who have been working on paper everyday object sculptures inspired by the work of Lenka Clayton, Miranda July, & Chris Gilmour.
