Super Bloom 210 - Daffodils Breaking Through - Pale Blue and Pale Pink / Spring Fling
I became a gardener a bit later in life and had no idea how bulbs worked. Then one fall I threw a bunch in the ground and honestly forgot about them. I still remember the first daffodil that I grew. It was a particularly challenging winter and I had a corporate job that was slowly undoing me. That daffodil was a sign that something outside of all of the present moment was in charge. Beauty. Every spring I'm reminded of that single daffodil and to keep going.
This is a hand painted piece ... I create this by painting directly onto a silkscreen and transferring the image to the paper beneath using a squeegee. What I love about it are the imperfections and unexpected marks that occur by using this process, called a mono print (just one!) I work out of a collective studio in East London called Print Club London.
This is part of the Spring Fling collection. What's a SPRING FLING? So many things - the mashup of the unexpected, random conversations with strangers on public transport, fresh blooms, inspiration that comes from looking up or looking down, a fresh perspective. Laughing at yourself and lazy afternoons. Marveling at the joy of what we once took for granted. Bliss
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 and then the screen printing process, there may be slight imperfections that are part of the charm of an original, hand made monoprint.
*This particular print has some paper imperfections - peeled back parts, bubbled paper. It's all part of adding layers to this work that has 3 layers.
56 cm x 77 cm ( with the image taking up 50 cm x 709 cm. One off original monoprint on high quality, archival 300 GSM cotton paper.
Signed in pencil at the bottom right corner as well as on the back.
Fits perfectly in a standard frame. I like the "Ribba" by Ikea - it's easy to install and to hang quickly.
Ships rolled in a tube, worldwide shipping available.
