Oh, that seahorse. These exquisite paintings, paying homage to bits and pieces of old neon signs, are the work of Seattle based artist Kellie Talbot. Here are a few words from her website about her work:
“Talbot’s work revolves around the landscape of American artifacts, craftsmanship and history. Signs and typography, architecture, industry, cemeteries and other emblems of society are the inspiration for her oil paintings. The rust and decay in the work aren’t negatives. They are both an elegy and a hope.”
Lovely. We could all use a little hope, am I right? Happy Monday.
