There are stories behind each artwork, and we find Vanessa Sicre's particularly engaging.
Vanessa's limited edition postcards were created using a variety of bank notes from around the world, to include countries as far flung as Argentina, Mexico, Mauritius, Singapore, the USA and South Africa. Less exotic, but also featured in her shop are bank notes from Italy, the Netherlands and Brussels. Her father collected these bank notes on his many and varied travels; most of the notes cannot be exchanged or are so old that they are no longer in circulation, so rather than discard them, she thought she’d recycle them. In doing so, she presents them as a tribute to her late father, each postcard carrying with it memories of an avid traveller who lived his life to the max. These memories are etched on paper – immortalised, they will never fade away.
