Original artwork description:

** For all of my works on paper, I am happy to offer combined shipping. Up to 3 works can be shipped together for the cost of one! **

Pandora’s Box, or The Garden of Earthly Delights
This collage has a life of its own; the brightly-coloured lines emerge from the depth of the dark shape like jewels from a treasure chest or new shoots from the earth. Their tips curve up from the surface of the paper, encouraging them to fly further. Each sprout brings a new promise, or maybe a secret about to be revealed. Perhaps those things in Pandora’s Box are actually really beautiful and wonderful- the only way to know, is to open it up and see what’s inside.

I think of my collages more as drawings because that’s how they begin. I draw with oil sticks, pastels and pencils on large sheets and then cut them down into various shapes which I recombine into new colour compositions. I don’t try to ‘make’ the shapes, but rather just start cutting and see what happens. The images are intuitive; they reflect my emotions and desires or are inspired by something in my surroundings.

Ultimately, what I’m after are the most stunningly beautiful, luminous, delicious colour combinations. I want to put colours together that fill your eyes with light; draw luscious, organic lines that make your mouth water, and create perfectly balanced compositions that feel like a light summer breeze flowing by.

I'm happy to also ship this artwork ready to hang in a simple white-glazed wooden frame. Frame costs 60 Euros. Shipping of framed work at no additional cost to standard shipping rate.
