Jane Perkins is a UK artist that uses found objects and recycled materials to create something new. In an ongoing series entitled plastic classics, Perkins recreates famous artworks and portraits using found objects.
On her website Perkins says she gets most of her materials from charity shops, boot sales and the recycling centre in Exeter; along with donations from friends and neighbours. Perkins says each piece usually takes about three weeks and that she initially uses a glue gun so she can play with the layout and move objects around. Once satisfied, she paints the whole artwork with a layer of diluted PVA glue.
