'Fading' Original Artwork on Irish Linen
A layered monoprint created on Irish Linen using block printing inks in a nostalgic colour palette of blush pink, tawny brown, rose and black. The colour palette has been chosen to give a softness to the image, a sense of nostalgia and the multiple layers evoking fond memories of moments in gardens. This is not a cultivated, manicured garden but rather those wild spaces of childhood where imagination runs wild. This piece seeks to captures the fading days of garden blooms through the ghost like imprint of stems forming the background. Metallic embellishment adds a sense of fading glory and joyful memory.
The image has been created by working with natural foliage gathered from my own garden and layered through the printing process and combined with delicate embellishment by hand.
This piece is mounted in a conservation standard double mount with grey and white.
The artwork is signed and titled and comes with a short written statement.
Overall dimensions are 22x22cm.
