Super Bloom 147 (Amaryllis after the storm)
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.
This piece is inspired by an Amaryllis flower that recently grew at our house in London. During the long winter’s days, I am always looking for signs of life. I have always wanted to try forcing a flower bulb to grow and it seemed very foreign, a bit strange to me. Until this flower appeared. It came from a box from the grocery store in the produce aisle. My daughter was like - “Pick that one!” A lone bulb in a box that promised a flower if watered and kept near sunlight. My husband paid more attention to it than I did. It looked pretty bleak in the beginning - a tiny green shoot emerging from the big bulb. Then the daily reports started coming in - “Hey, look at that leaf... oooh, that looks like it will be a blossom, wow - it’s getting so tall.” Then one day it blossomed - a firework candy burst of beauty in the middle of grey still days.
This piece is part of the EMERGENCE COLLECTION - celebrating the beauty of life percolating under the surface, waiting to burst forward into the spring. A lesson in patience and grace and allowing Mother Nature to do her work.
One of a kind, hand painted (two layers!) on a silk screen, then printed on Fabriano 300GSM cold press paper and signed at the bottom right hand side. 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 original, but please note that colors may appear differently on your screen.
Due to the nature of the painting then the screen print process, there may be slight flaws that are part of the charm of an original, hand made mono print.
Paper size: 40 cm x 50 cm
Framing: easily fits into an Ikea RIBBA frame. I offer framing options in London for pick up only, please email email@example.com with any inquiries.
Signed at the bottom right corner.
