Junk Mail Portraits

Craft & Design Home

Artist Sandhi Schimmel Gold creates these stunning pop art portraits from junk mail.

My work reflects our society’s obsession with beauty through advertising – and the endless images that bombard us daily. It is a purposeful intermix of images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces – images and text – from advertising that arrives through my mailbox. Assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new image – an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my imagination, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste.
