Nursery Art – A Bespoke Rubbish Rabbit
10 November 2010
This week I have been creating a new Rubbish Picture. I was asked to create this one to be a gift for a new baby girl, to be hung in the proud family’s beautiful newly decorated and prepared nursery. Rubbish Pictures always seem to be popular as Nursery Art, particularly the animals designs, so I was delighted to be commissioned. What made this project stand out even more, was the challenge of creating a character entirely from the bits and pieces of packaging and wrappings that the baby girl’s first gifts were presented to her in.
It’s the kind of thing that you hate, as a new parent, to throw away, but can’t possibly keep or you’d end up with bags of ‘memories’ absolutely everywhere by the time your child starts school! This use of them, to create some personal, relevant, art for the child to keep and treasure long term is a lovely idea that I truly hope will catch on. Bespoke Rubbish Pictures, I think, is definitely the way to go….
