The inspiration for Kitty Calvert’s unique assemblage sculptures, comes from a love of vintage and a desire to re-use and recycle unique pieces of discarded treasure, evoking cherished memories of childhood and making new cool stuff out of old cool stuff.
We invite the viewer to reflect on the concept of waste in the world, of recycling that waste into a new form and the potential journey each individual piece has made to its final resting place inside the sculpture. In today’s world where things are designed with obsolescence in mind, we find there is a hankering for things that last.
With the sculptures, we have given the treasure a new life. Seeing the pieces recycled, revived and restored, reimagined, reborn and reinvigorated in a way that brings new joy to a new audience.
No two sculptures are the same, each unique piece has been left in its original found state and speaks to the individual of many things. Our aim is that the sculptures give you fond memories of simpler times and transport you on your own magical journey of memory.
Kitty’s wish is to delight her audience with mischievous frivolity and quirky humor.
