'The Garden Memory' Original Artwork on Irish Linen
The Garden Memory
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; perhaps from childhood or perhaps from the season past. This is not a cultivated, manicured garden but rather those wild spaces of childhood where imagination runs wild.
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.
