Old Boxes New Lives

UpendoLR

One day my sister and I were scavenging our grandfather’s attic and we stumbled upon these intricate little boxes with slide covers and carved handles. We stuck them with glue against the walls that were inside our closets and those boxes became our secret treasure compartments where we’d collect and hide our findings, like comic book clippings and little mice figures that my sister made out of cloth material.

Then I grew up and boxes just stayed with me. Now I go to antique shops and buy old cigar boxes. I try to look for the old wooden ones that are dark and deeply stained so when I carve into the wood, the lighter colored or the unstained wood shows through and creates a good contrast to the carved images.

Food Inspired Paper Art by Sarah Dennis

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As well as publishing a number of children’s books, producing bespoke commissions and exhibiting artwork for galleries, a major influence over this year’s work has been food! This is largely because Sarah’s brother (the chef) and father (the foodie) have teamed up and opened their very first restaurant. Sarah has helped by produced the logos, graphic designs and menu covers. But most excitingly she has also completed a beautiful collection of food inspired papercut artwork, which now features on the walls of the restaurant. Sarah believes that cooking, food and art are very much entwined and this project has opened a whole new world of artistic possibilities. She has relished the opportunity to influence a space with her paper artwork, drawing influence from the creativity of her brother’s cooking and the magic and colour of incredible ingredients.
