Paul Villinski

These works are from an amazing series created from lost gloves by Australian artist Paul Villinski in New York.

"They have qualities we fear coming to know: carelessly left behind, forgotten or discarded, weathered, damaged, exhausted and worn through, run over by life, homeless. Lost and found. so i bring them into the studio and into pieces and give them homes, with the others . . . they get jobs too . . ."

"The gloves are collected from the streets daily. The pieces are obsessively handmade. Entwined. Hand stitched. They are about handwork and restoration and connectedness. Once they lie melancholic, now they are hopeful." Paul Villinski
