Artwork Description

Photograph on paper

Signed certificate of authenticity.

Months ago I tilled the soil in front of my house and planted sunflower seeds. This week they came into their own, and I can't help but notice the smiles on the faces of people passing by. How could I not harvest a few of them to immortalise in an artwork? It's hard for me to keep things simple, I like to have lots of hidden layers going on in my artwork...but I also wanted to pay homage to Van Gogh's sunflower work: imagining that he may have set up something very similar all those years ago. I have used my mother's 100+ year old ceramic pot as the vase, and have incorporated various butterflies and bees into the work. In reality, the sunflowers call so many of these insects to them daily - it's pollination heaven :-)

This is a photographic artwork. I photograph each element myself and then carefully bring everything together in post-production. I hand paint with light and shadow to give the rich, painterly feel to my work. I oversee the printing of each piece in the edition, printed by a master printer, and sign each artwork.

Please enquire for other limited edition sizes.
