A portrait of Bernice
British artist Jane Perkins uses all sorts of small, found plastic objects and a glue gun to create awesome assemblage pieces. Jane calls herself a “re-maker” for the way she repurposes everyday objects such as toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry, curtain hooks, springs, and so on. It doesn’t matter what the objects are, as long as they’re the right size, shape, and colour.
The three beautiful pieces seen here are from her current series, entitled Plastic Classics, for which “Old Masters are given a contemporary twist.”
"Impressionist paintings are the perfect inspiration for my work. It needs to be viewed in two ways (as in Impressionism) - from a distance to make sense of the whole image, and close up to identify the materials used (the brush strokes)."

Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, Austria. In the winter you’ll find crisp, tranquil grasslands and lake that is only about 3 to 6 feet deep. However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 40 feet from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
