Ordinary to Extraordinary

Florida-based artist Sally Mankus utilizes old kitchenware, including pot lids and pans, to create mixed-media works such as these portraits. The material’s connection to the home and the idea of the metallic surface’s reflection of the viewer are a few of the reasons why she is drawn to re-imagining kitchenware. Sally says, "The faces used in this mixed media work are mainly from photographs I have taken of friends and family members. Familiar brand names and symbols appear on some handles ... Wearever, Saladmaster, Kitchen Craft, Mirro and Queen."
