Light Grey Art Lab
"Memories" by Emmeline Pidgen
Bower Bird was a postcard project celebrating the art of collecting, curating, and personal artifacts. Each of the 90 contributing artists created a limited edition series of postcards with subjects ranging from historical memorabilia, house plants, fossils and bones, national park attire, ancient books, and more. These objects may not have monetary value, but a rich history of our lives, interests, and personal influences- the collection is a modern day cabinet of curiosities.
Limited Edition Postcard:
4.1" × 5.8" in.
Ink linework with digital colouring.
About this collection:
"I decided to base my illustration on my cardboard box of mementos: small relics of my happiest days and most important moments that would probably look like rubbish to anyone else.
I love the idea that I can stumble across these personal little treasures (most often when I'm rummaging for lost keys or a hairband) and be transported back to a special time. I like to think that most of us have a box of mementos hidden away somewhere: our own unique collection that sparks our memories and reflects our lives."
