Artwork description:

I found this unusual flower on a trip to Sri Lanka where the hotel grounds were scattered with them. After some research I discovered they are from the tree 'barringtonia racemosa', otherwise known as the 'powder puff tree'. They really do look like exquisite little powder puffs - dreamy, light and graceful. I love the way the festive shocks of vibrant pink and gold contrast against the creamy white strands. They look so elegant and otherworldly here - like floating sea anemones, or delicately unravelling strands of silk - against the rustic earthy- grey concrete wall. I overlaid textures of crumbling Sri Lankan walls to the image to give added character.

This artwork will be printed with a one inch white border unless otherwise requested. The artwork is supplied unmounted, but a mount cut to any size can also be supplied at a small additional cost. For certain works, different size requests can be accommodated. Please contact me for details.

Your artwork will arrive wrapped in plenty of acid free tissue paper and rolled in a very sturdy postal tube.

Materials used:

Giclée fine art photographic print using archival inks on 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching archival fine art paper
