We were staying in Cornwall, at the home of a friend. I went for a walk, with a folded sheet of paper and a roll of sellotape.
In the fields and on the high, wild cliff edges, I picked this lot, sticking them into my booklet as I proceeded, sorting loosely by colour.
Can I tell you what they are? No. Not all. But they include fragments of foxglove, red clover, white clover, buttercup, and fuchsia.
Immediately afterwards, I scanned it, then forgot about the flowers for nearly five years.
Having rediscovered it, I’ve printed a limited number of copies on art paper with archival inks. I think they look beautiful.
I’m offering them as part of the #artistsupportpledge.
“Pressed for Time: Cornish flowers, July 2015”. Giclee print on Hahnemühle German Etching paper. 8.3″ × 12.5″ (210mm × 317mm).
£75 each, including P+P. First two (of 15) have gone already. If you would like one, please let me know.
ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists around the world have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work, exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio instigated the #artistsupportpledge
The concept is simple. You post images of your work to sell for no more than $200 (£200, €200, ¥20000) each (not including shipping.) Anyone can then buy the work. Every time you reach $1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist’s work for $200.
