But In The Hands Of Artist Janet Morton It Does, Yet Not The Way You Think
When I first saw this small work by Canadian artist Janet Morton entitled ‘Lipstick, 2010-2011’ (comprised of wool and found lipstick containers), my immediate reaction was to laugh at the simple ‘tongue and cheek’ aspect of the piece. The lipstick looks like an ordinary lipstick, but when the cap is removed and you turn the bottom, you might be greeted by a sweet surprise including a nubby wooly ‘lipstick’ or one containing wool with fiery red metallic strands.
Either way, the lipsticks are simply adorable to add to any collection. Available at Paul Petro.
