Whiteley's Queen

                     
'Whiteley's Queen' was created to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II as well as the one hundredth anniversary of Whiteley's Shopping Centre in London. This is the largest stamp image Pete has created to date, measures 10ft by 16ft and hung in the  Central Atrium within Whiteleys. The work was created on two canvases to enable it to be transported from the studio to Whiteley's and took three months to complete. The image of the 'First Class Stamp' was created from nearly thirty thousand used postage stamps which were carefully cut and shaped and individually glued to the canvas. Those who were able to view the work could see the diamond shapes in the wording of DIAMOND JUBILEE at the top of the work. At the bottom of the work the date 1912 was made from the older style Wilding stamps and the numbers which made  2012 comprised of the more modern Machin definitive design.
