With the next to nothing that’s currently in my chequing account, I’ve literally just opted to buy art instead of food; but what could feed me more than this collage wonder (above) by Melbourne based artist Minna Gilligan?! I mean, LOOK AT IT!!
I wrote a love letter to Minna this past week after having looked longingly at her collages online for months. Of course, when one writes impossibly cool people, one half expects to never hear back; and so I was thrilled to receive an appreciative, sunny response from Minna not one day later that also included some love for The Good: “I just checked out your blog! How beautiful! :) :) :)” (blushing). The two of us then began a fun exchange regarding prices and available works. It was nearly impossible for me to settle on one out of the many available (see below); but ultimately, I was drawn to the sincerity, seriousness and romance of the work pictured above. With just a few elements, Minna ties love, magic, friendship, fate, innocence and doubt into a seductive knot. To see more of her work, check her website or browse through ROOKIE (obsessed).
Thank you, Minna! Let us know if you’re ever in Toronto! x
