Felicity Powell

 

Oh yes, I love Felicity Powell. She makes her wax pieces look almost as magical as photography (darkroom processes only). Felicity is an artist from London, whose show, Charmed Life: The solace of objects, is on display at the Wellcome Collection through the end of February.

She was one of the only people to have access to a collection of 1400 amulets assembled by the Edwardian amateur folklorist Edward Lovett. These amulets were once carried in the pockets of Londoners for luck or protection.
