CHINOISERIE IN NEUTRALS
'CHINOISERIE IN NEUTRALS'
TRIPTYCH - 3 FRAMED CANVAS PANELS SOLD AS A SET.
My first in a series of 'Limited Edition' prints, I wanted to create a collection of images in a neutral colour palette based on a luxurious Chinoiserie style, with touches of gold and silver. As a ‘generic' Asian design, I have included imagery from several countries including Singapore, China, Japan, India, Hong Kong and Bali.
Inspired by the beautiful antique Chinese lattice work in my old Hong Kong studio, the images are all "framed" as if looking through an ornate window. Each individual piece gives a glimpse into life in Asia, with a combination of places, colours, textiles and hand painted patterns. I really enjoyed painting the floral panel and the Indian paisley motifs in gold and silver inks, however, one of my favourite parts of this design has to be the little ‘flying birds’ that I combined with the vintage jacquard silk fabric of a ‘tea cosy’ that I bought in Melbourne many years ago. I also love the Japanese symbols that I created using some beautifully woven golden fabric which I bought in the markets when I lived in Shanghai.
This is a limited edition of 100 prints only.
Please note that this edition can only be sold as a set and cannot be split into individual panels for sale.
THE GOLD DETAIL ON THIS DESIGN IS NOT HAND PAINTED BUT IS REPRESENTED AS A BEAUTIFULLY DETAILED PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGE OF EMBROIDERED GOLD FABRIC WITHIN THE SHAPES OF THE ILLUSTRATION.
Each individual print will come with a hand signed and numbered 'Certificate of Authenticity' on the back.
