Coffee table makeover

Coffee table

My dear little wrought iron coffee table, cast off on the street as garbage in suburban Brisbane then retrieved by Ray finally got its de-rust, lick of paint, brand new top, and a new home in the Sunshine Coast.

When re-creating a discarded object, I like to find some way to pay trubute to the original. In this instance, I decided to make a photographic collage of the After the Flood paintings in such a way that they resembled colourful tesserae in a mosiac pattern.
