Ikarus flew to close to the sun, something we could all benefit from from time to time, a bit of chance taking is good for the soul.
I have painted this collage and drawing with acrylics on a heavy water color paper that is quite structured, keeping the edges nice and clean so you can frame it floated if you want.
The actual bird body is collaged (heavy black vintage paper) on with acrylic medium and then I have added acrylic paint, metal leaf, conte crayon, charcoal and pencil, when dry, the whole piece have had a coat of UV varnish to both protect and stop smudging.
I have signed this unique piece on the front, adding the title and year on the back.
The piece of paper measures 50 cm x 70 cm ( 20" x 27")
this of course means it will go in a standard frame.
I ship from my studio in Denmark, rolled in a large diameter sturdy tube, packed with care, and many years experience of sending artwork.
If you have any questions, or would like a custom piece made, just get in touch,
All the best, Mariann
