Anyone remember, when you were little, putting the Chiquita banana sticker on your forehead at the breakfast table? Introducing Rachel Perry Welty who has taken the aesthetic possibilities of fruit stickers a whole lot further, as well as baking flour... and take out trays. Of her work, this conceptual artist says, "Much is created from the paper which passes through and accounts for my life: twist ties, cash register receipts, medical records, grocery dry goods boxes, price tags and produce stickers."
Below is a detail from an installation of take out containers.
And take a look at this "drawing" made with baking flour... sifted over playmobil objects.
Couldn't resist, a few more sticker drawings...
"The stickers become traces of the objects bought and consumed, just as language itself is a trace."
Know any artists whose work would make a home a lovelier place? Send ideas to The Gallery. Thanks!
