David Poppie: paperback art

Last week I wrote about Chris Jordan and his art project “Running the numbers II”, where he used old bottle caps and plastic bags to create large sized reproductions of well known paintings. This week with David Poppie I found an artist claiming a similar motif.

Poppie uses disposable objects like pencils, old paperbacks, teabags or plastic cutlery to create his artworks. These things are usually disregarded by us in our everyday life, he is convinced, thus his object paintings give them another value.
