Using found and recycled materials such as plastic toys, shells, beads and buttons, British artist Jane Perkins reinterprets famous paintings like Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and portraits of iconic figures including Albert Einstein. No color is added to any of the materials – they are used exactly as found. Her art is the result of her incredible talent for mixing thousands of differently colored, textured, sized and shaped elements into a single masterpiece. From a distance, one can easily recognize the artwork being reinterpreted, but it’s when up-close that one is mesmerized by the details that are revealed.
