Extraordinary to me can mean little things.
That which some overlook holds the whole world to others.
For a time, extraordinary to me was a miniature carousel.
Brought out every Christmas, untouched by age and wear.
Once you look deeper, you realise how carousels are a current reminder of the decadence of past art in an accessible way.
I wanted to bring that into this piece, applying an impressionist style and experimenting with focus and depth.
