Tim Moore: Not My Blotting Tissues

Tim Moore-2-Design Crush


Aside from beauty, art is also in the eye of the beholder. Whether it’s a plastic bag caught floating in the breeze, shapes in the clouds… or the discarded blotting tissues of artist Del Kathryn Barton. Because that’s exactly what Tim Moore saw when working as Barton’s assistant, so much so that he turned 95 of them into a book – Tim Moore: Not My Blotting Tissues.

    How fascinating! I can see why discarded blotting tissues would be appealing. They have an organic abstract quality about them, as you never know what each sheet will look like after you’ve blotted your paintbrush. I also think that some of the coloured shapes, resemble tiny, floral petals on handmade paper.

    Love this idea and thanks for sharing!
