4. Patchwork Dads – Paul Klee

AlisonSye4

Paul Klee (1879 – 1940), father of Felix.

Paul made about fifty puppets for Felix, using stuff that was to hand. My dad used to do this sort of thing.

You can see Paul’s wonderful puppets on Clive’s blog post,  here.

The square was cut from a Klee exhibition at Tate Modern in 2013/14. The photograph is by Felix Klee.

This is the fourth square in my patchwork of dads. It is made from discarded books, magazines, postcards and junk mail. It is made from the actual papers, I have not printed or copied anything. There are sixteen squares in total. You can see the whole piece here.

All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 798. It can be found in my shop.
