Found Objects Provide Background for Beautiful Printed Portraits

Using found objects like shampoo bottles and bottle caps, Renaud Delorme recreates portraits of famous people in carefully thought-out mosaics in the series Well Organized Muses. Each multi-faceted piece contains an image of a celebrity printed onto a transparent pane of acrylic glass while behind it lies the collection of items sorted by color, size, and relevancy providing a most unique background for each completed piece. The entire artwork becomes a harmonious synthesis of recycling, mixed media and pop culture resulting in a series that embodies the aphorism ‘the sum is greater than its parts.’
