Jessie Henson "Armada"

I saw this great artwork in Architectural Digest.
Jessie Henson's Armada, "A contemporary work comprising of found maritime paintings".

"These pieces deal with the transformation of objects into something greater than their individual selves. The objects I use often have individual histories, and are saturated with memory."

From Jessie Henson's website, below
“Armada” is made from paintings collected from thrift stores, flea markets and on ebay.
The paintings encircle a room, fitting exactly into the space in which it is shown.
The ocean horizon lines each match the line of painting next to it.
the installation is pitch perfect, love the textured white backdrop
