Rachel Perry Welty: Lost in my Life

For her ‘Lost in my Life’ series American artist Rachel Perry Welty uses thousands of the throw away items and takes these ordinary items to create works of art with texture, complexity and meaning. She describes: “most of us don’t pay much attention to the mundane objects we use everyday, like the twist ties that hold the plastic wrap on our bread and the broccoli together or the little paper cups that we pull out of a water dispenser.”

There is a ritual about compiling these unconventional art materials into sculptures that seems both overwhelming and obsessive.
