Do Put them on Plinths Though

Had real success working with the plinths though! Putting these ornamental objects in a white cube setting, on white plinths, completely removed them from their original context within the home. They become something else. I highlighted with one of the figures the “all important” stamp. That’s what my grandma gives the up most importance to when it comes to her ornaments; so I thought why cover it up and put it at the bottom? Why not put it on display? I also experimented with a sky blue plinth, I think this added something else- that touch more homeliness to it. I think the more colour in the figure the more it worked with the blue plinth. I really liked experimenting with this today! Next step is to start wallpapering the plinths!
