There’s a kind of beauty in everyday items and simple pleasures, isn’t there? A perfect bouquet of flowers, a treasured book’s cover, a stylish scarf draped just so. That’s what makes these Framed Objects by the. so brilliant.
It’s a bit like the concept of Duchamp’s “readymades,” where an ordinary object becomes art simply because the artist selected it, arranged it and placed it in the right context. (Of course, Duchamp’s work was intended to be satirical, so it’s not entirely the same. But who wants a signed urinal on their wall?) I particularly love the framed vase — it would certainly elevate your average Valentine’s Day arrangement, wouldn’t it?
