Love the look of bell jars but find them essentially pointless unless maybe you’re a collector of some sort [or you enjoy dusting every day]? Well UK based Bulgarian artist Marina Munn’s fantastical series ‘Collecting’ might be just the thing for a beautiful and uncomplicated relationship.
Munn’s series illustrates sometimes surreal and sometimes mundane objects captured under bell jars in softly psychedelic colours. From an entire cosmos hovering under a glass dome – to a Victorian key and an ombre hued chunk of coral – each scene draws you into a tiny magical world. You can see the rest of Marina’s work on her site and on her Tumblr and buy fine art prints from Auguste Clown Gallery.
