I’m continually inspired by subjects that are given new life outside of their usual contexts.
This is why the work of artist Hormazd Narielwalla fascinates me.
Bespoke tailoring patterns discarded by the tailor become the building blocks in Narielwalla’s paper collages.
Most recently for the Saatchi Online, his collage takes 3D form for the first time, in the shape of a skull.
It is an amalgamation of varying bespoke patterns no longer in use (due to owners being deceased).
Join me in voting for it from the 3rd of January 2012 in the Saatchi Online showdown here.
