Artist's description:

A mixed media work bringing old photography, painting and collage and text together to create a thought provoking and ethereal piece to ponder on.

Using found imagery of music hall entertainers working at the turn of the last century, I have created a multi-layered decorative piece depicting a softer, more innocent approach to light entertainment and humour. The two central figures are a comedy duo dressed in 'clownish' garb appearing as apparitions against a backdrop of layered vintage stage scenery, typical to the times. I have used snippets of text from old music hall billboard poster advertisements of performances to further inform the context of the piece.

It is presented in an elegant wood effect frame which perfectly compliments the colours and textures of the piece and soft cream mount provides a pleasing 'visual break' between the frame and the artwork. seen pictured in a "at home" context. I have signed it very discreetly on the front. It is a free standing piece but also has fixings to enable it to be displayed on a wall.

The cost includes postage and packaging and every care will be taken to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
