A dissection – after William Morris

A dissection – after William Morris.

This is a brand new piece that I finished recently.  Well actually I cut the 6 pieces that it is made up of several months ago but couldn’t work out what to do with them. The idea I’d had when I first cut them didn’t work. So I put them to one side and forgot about them, then suddenly in a flash I had an idea of what to do.  And here you see the end result.

I am continuing on my new layering style and I am very excited to share it with you.  I love this piece.  It is heavily inspired by a William Morris textile design and is hand cut from a map from Catalonia in Spain. On a trip there a few years ago, I found this beautiful map and I think it works really well with the leaves.

In my mind it is like a pair of lungs, like the capillaries. I love medical drawings, those etchings you get in old medical dictionaries, which is what I was trying to capture here, all be it with plants.

What does it bring to mind  to you?  I’d love to know, why not leave me a comment below.

Below are some more images of the piece.  It will be on show with Flow gallery at Collect at the Saatchi Gallery 9- 12 May.  For further information click here.
