Sleep On It: Mattresses=Art

Images by Savina (SHopkins Fossick)
I was reading a post by the talented Savina, highlighting an appreciation for the abandoned mattress.

It reminded me of some photographs I saw a few years ago by Toby Richardson. The particular series is entitled More Singles Couples and Queens (2008), depicting used mattresses. They are amazing prints. The friend that was with me had to look twice before she recognised the subject matter, she was so taken by them.

From the link above, it appears that Toby Richardson's new work is focused on op shops and garage sales - right up Savina's alley also.Why not check out his work and her blog.

  1. Hi Ames/Tash, looked at and loved the work by Toby Richardson...the mattresses are gorgeous in a war-torn kind of way.
    Thanks for post!
