Vancouver-based artist Janice Wu has recently created a series of artworks based on the everyday throwaway objects we encounter and sometimes keep in our pockets. Wu explores “how seemingly worthless objects have potential for whimsy and how the ‘inanimate’, mundane can reveal poetic and narrative possibilities.” Wu manages to challenge our perception of the banal and ordinary by meticulously recreating pencil-drawn carbon copies of everyday items that most of us will not even look twice over. The colorful nature of the composition of her work reminds us that the ordinary, displayed in such a way, can shed new light to mundane daily materials. Further info on the artist is available here.
