Description

Lovingly hand-crafted with real Crocus flowers that were homegrown in our little garden in London and pressed by us.

From a series called Untitled Haze. These works involve encapsulating pressed plants between sections of very thin, translucent paper. Using each section as a material the piece is arranged, built up and patch-worked together along folded seam-lines as if working with precious and sentimental pieces of fabric. This series has been developed to exaggerate delicacy/lightness and require an inherent understanding of the plants and materials we work with.

This artwork is signed, dated and supplied framed and ready to hang in a thin walnut profile. The frame was individually handmade by Mike and made from repurposed offcuts of moulding. The artwork extends to the edge of the frame and is carefully held so space separates the artwork from the glass in front as well as giving space behind the artwork to help retain the lightness and delicacy of the paper. There is a rigid white backing set behind the artwork to give contrast so the flowers stand out when hanging. The outside size of this framed artwork is approximately 20.5 x 29cm.

The last photos show unframed Crocus patchworks alongside this framed piece as well as a group of artworks from this series. See our listings for other available Untitled Haze pieces.

Please note as these artworks are made using real plant material colours will change/fade gradually through exposure to sunlight (indirect & direct).

Thanks for looking :)
