mathilde tinturier

Gasp! As a person who loves forgotten bits and pieces, my garden, and vibrant color… well, these pieces are everything. This is the work of Swiss artist Mathilde Tinturier. I could go on and on, but the description on her site does a lovely job. Here is just a portion translated into English:

There are thousands of them, lost materials, trash, abandoned twigs, umbellifers, scotches, confetti, dandelions, Christmas balls, thrown at random into a world that is no longer theirs. What unites them? Nothing. What are they whispering to us? Nothing. What do they tell us about the world? Few things … What unites them? Chance and necessity, a secret order that Mathilde for each work reinvents and gives all these forgotten objects a place, a voice, a presence.
