The perfect follow-up to yesterday's awesome photo of Kristin from Mette as a Mad Men character is this 'blast from the past' artwork from Jim Ward Morris. The Bellingham, Washington artist has created two series of works called Midcentury and Postmodern in which he's taken midcentury iconography and flanked it with bold blocks of colour. The result resembles 1950s/60s advertising that has collided with Barnett Newman paintings. Very cool.
Archival digital prints of both series are available to buy at the artist's website (I see more than a few that would look great with our 'Coca-Cola red' lacquered top 1950s diner-style kitchen table). For all things midcentury, postmodern and retro, visit Morris' blog.
