With no discernible use for the first one of these I cut I thought ‘these look cool, I think I’ll do some more’ so set about doing exactly that. They’re all mini lasercuts of our Phil Collins ‘No Context Required’ pieces and feature out of context Phil Collins quotes combined with various other bits of frippery – logo’s, celebrities and the like. What exactly they are for or indeed can be used for I’m not entirely sure but as doodah’s go they’re sure pretty. I’ve thought about painting them but they’re entirely too small for such shenanigans so they are what they are. They can be grasped comfortably in one hand. That much can definitely be said about them. Beyond that I’m not so sure.
Turning Phil Collins quotes into art in order to try and exorcise him from my thoughts was my initial aim with this series but it now seems to have taken on a life of its own. Today’s ‘No Context Required’ piece sees Phil’s somewhat philosophical quote about wishing you were somebody else collocated with Games of Thrones star Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark). She’s not in character in this design but I’ve helpfully given a hint to her character with her mash-up t-shirt featuring the Direwolf logo from the House of Stark in Game of Thrones and the Stark Industries logo from Marvel’s Iron Man.
Once you’ve liberally sprinkled a few more pilfered logos into the quote and adorned it with a delightful grey & blue background then you’re good to go with another successful ‘No context required’ piece. It’s laser engraved on wood then hand painted and stands proud at 39 x 26cm. Drop us a line if you’re interested…
