! Altered Perspectives !
"Many designers currently regard finished
consumer goods as raw material from which to create new and exciting objects.
Little Owl has taken two usually separate objects [Paintings & Blue and White Transferware] each containing scenes, or ‘perspectives’,
and through artful alteration produced unexpected new images from the combination of both.
The juxtaposition results in something that becomes a conversation piece as the canvas of the painting merges with the printed images of the plates.
A landscape painted in the Netherlands blends into an English country scene on the plate, and in the process a new image is made through the merging of both.
The roughness of canvas from the paintings and the smooth gloss of the plates makes for an appealing contrast of surfaces.
As each set in the Altered Perspectives series is made from different paintings, and plates made by various producers of European tableware, each finished set is unique."
