⚬ Description ⚬
This is an archival print of the original collage. Fits standard 11” x 14” frame.
The original piece was cut and pasted by hand from collection of used and vintage books.
Nothing but nostalgic art so clearly takes us back to our favourite memories. This nostalgic collage encapsulates timeless memories of Selina and her brother spending time together watching basketball. At the time, their favourite basketball team player was Michael Jordan from Chicago Bulls, who was also known as the Black Cat.
If you think about how MJ moved on the court, he was pretty relentless. His success is evidenced with him being named the NBA's Most Valuable Player (MVP) five times, symbolized with MJ figure cutout plus the four black cats images in this collage. He can be stealth like but could strike at any time. His intense competitiveness and fearless character are flawlessly depicted with the fierce looking black cats.
This collage can also be viewed as a representation of his six times championships with Chicago bulls (symbolized with MJ figure, 4 black cats and, 1 dove). The choice of dove is based on one of the most memorable championship that happened on Father’s Day. It was the first winning after his father passed away. In this collage, it is like the dove watching over MJ here just like his father watching over him from heaven.
Her sense of design and ability to create depth further invite viewers to join her in this exploration of memory.
Hope you enjoy this 🏀 and it is a perfect pair with the other collage Kobe - the Mamba.
