Super Bloom 98 (Sunflowers in the City at midnight)
I have been dreaming of doing a floral series! Using a silkscreen technique, each of these mono prints resembles a painting. What I love about it are the random oops and mistakes that can happen along the way that contribute to the perfect imperfections of each.
Recently I was on my way to the Print Club in London, where I create these pieces. I saw a guy with a bunch of sunflowers and thought to myself - ahhhh! Sunflowers in the City! It was such a bright contrast to the grey cityscape, a breath of sunshine. Who knows where he was taking them, hopefully to brighten his own day and maybe someone else’s, too?! Anyway, the whole situation made me smile. So I picked up a fresh bunch and brought them to the studio to be my flower models. I think they did a good job!
One of a kind, hand painted on a silk screen, then printed on heavyweight archival paper. I work out of a screen print studio in East London called The Print Club.
I do my best to capture the true colors of this print, but please note that colors may appear differently on your screen.
Due to the nature of printing, there may be slight ink spots in the borders. These should not be considered flaws, but part of the hand created process.
This print will look best with a custom mount.
