The cool blue light of dusk, shorter August evenings and the longing to preserve the last of the summer scents, have inspired this textile collage. Working in only blues, pinks and purples, gives the collage a dreamy look, hang it in your bedroom or study to make the moments of relaxing so much more. What we have on our walls influences us daily, quite meditational this is perfect for a busy life! I print all the ingredients for my textile collages from my own linocut plates, in oilbased inks, they are totally lightfast and makes the collage very unique, a true one of a kind.
This is a textile collage, on a gorgeous 100% vintage french linen, the “canvas“ is quite rough texture, enhancing the fine ness and light I have tried to bring to this collage. I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts, the birds are also printed by me, that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered extensively, and fastened all the loose ends so the collage has a very finished look. It is initialed on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 24" x 25" ( 61 cm x 64 cm)
I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
A very simple frame would look best, online you can order custom frames and try them out before purchasing if you don't have a framer handy.
This collage linocut arrives carefully wrapped, I roll it up in a mailing tube with tissue paper and a plastic sleeve. I can also add a personal hand written message of your choosing - just mail me your message and ill add it to the package. Each collage will also arrive with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch if you are giving it away as a gift.
