Found Art: Yellow Buttons

Peter Blake

picture of Peter Blake Peter Blake is internationally famous as a leading exponent of British Pop Art. Icons and ephemera of popular culture summarised by the seminal cover art for ‘Sergeant Pepper’. (updated 14 Apr 201)

Blake continues to explore the beauty, elegance and simplicity of commercial design in Found Art: Yellow Buttons. This vintage button set from France is presented an object of beauty and interest beyond the brief glance we might give it if we were buying said buttons as a day-to-day domestic purchase. Blake urges us to re-assess the objects and design we see around us, to question the boundaries of what should be considered ‘fine art’. The regular layout of the buttons is reminiscent of the repeated images in Andy Warhol’s pop art prints, highlighting the relentless production of machine-made culture. The use of digital printing enables Blake to capture the texture of each thread binding the button to the card, and he texture of that card. By enlarging this run-of-the-mill object he makes it somehow alien, allowing us to assess it aesthetically rather than practically.
