Yvette Appleby

My work is usually assembled pieces from found objects producing diverse and interesting finished pieces. I try to use objects that have a certain age and history and the more unusual the better. Old worn toys in particular can suggest various scenarios / dioramas and constructions. I use and collect old glass domes and cases and use old frames as ‘containers’ for my work. I also have a love and interest in natural history, bones and taxidermy which I also use in my work. I hope to place my work in a garden and add a mysterious element to the environment.

I have been shortlisted for the 2018 Royal Academy Exhibition.
