The first of the larger pieces for the Unfurl exhibition are done and ready for framing!
This time I have posted photos from a few different angles to show the depth in the work. They are very delicate and so difficult to photograph!
Every element is hand drawn with archival pigment, cut and then embossed, sometimes stitched with fine metallic thread, then assembled with french art wire. They are then pinned onto Arches or Stonehenge 300gsm paper and backing board using the finest entomology pins, giving them the appearance of floating above the paper. I hope the photos give some idea...
This piece begins as a series of insect specimens, in which which botanical elements gradually appear in a metamorphosis from insect to plant. Approx 45 x 50cm unframed.
Over coming days I will post videos of finished works to show the dimension in each.
Enjoy your Saturday....off to watch the boys play cricket x
